Nelson Mandela will never be forgotten.

The prominent political leader, whose life-long work to end apartheid in his native South Africa and subsequent election as the country's first black president made him an icon and furthermore, a global symbol of peace and social change, died Thursday, the government of South Africa confirmed. He was 95.

According to reports, Mandela died from complications due a recurring lung infection. He had been hospitalized since June 8.

And as with many cases lately, the world began to mourn the loss of such a peaceful soul on Twitter.
