HAPPY BIRTHDAY NELSON MANDELA
Nelson Mandela today celebrated his 92nd birthday quietly with his family in Johannesburg.
His birthday was marked by Mandela Day, conceived as an international event devoted to public service, and a celebration of the former president’s life.
Mandela’s wife, Graca Machel, said: “Today is an opportunity for millions of people around the world to look inside themselves and say: ‘I am able to make a difference to my neighbour, to someone underprivileged. I can extend my goodness to other people.’”
