Every year, 18th July is marked as Nelson Mandela International Day, and this year is the 100th year since his birth! Mandela was born in 1918, and died 5 years ago. Madiba as he was called by fans and those who loved him, left a legacy for the global community of love, partnership, tolerance, justice and service to society. Facebook, Google, and other global organizations are recognizing this great man today, and we are not left out.
