Imagine spending 27 years in prison, in an 8 x 5 room with a metal bucket as a lavatory, and being subjected to manual labour - all because you spoke out against racism and insisted that all people be treated equally. Twenty seven years of loneliness, unable to see family and friends, unable to attend even the funeral of one’s mother and one’s son.

No Christmases. No birthdays. No hugs. No words of comfort.

That was Nelson Mandela’s story. And yet, when the metal gates clanged open to release him, he came out with hope and optimism intact, determined to change the world, and determined to set things right.

Unjaded, unchanged, and full of fiery zeal - a true leader.

Nelson Mandela is one of the most recognised names among those of the great humans who have served to make the world a better place for us, proving to us that we can do the same in turn. His inspiring story of perseverance, hope, courage, and determination is one which deserves to be told and read, repeatedly.
