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.

I was born in South Africa; I am only a second generation South African. I have 400+ years of American blood flowing through me. I have lived through and seen the utter devastation in my country and have lost much through the brutal violence in South Africa like so many of my fellow folk.
I do not have a fancy education but I am a giver, I live to serve my God and my people. I am involved with South African Family Relief Project. I am directly responsible for clothing and feeding White South African Families that are in crisis.
My name is Niall Mac Áibaicín and I currently live in Co. Donegal, Ireland. I lived in South Africa for approximately 20 years until the end of 2009 and worked as a financial and budgets manager as well as an academic director in universities within South Africa, Switzerland and Germany. My area of academic work was in Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior. I specialized in Leadership and Emotional Intelligence. The last few years of my time in South Africa were spent working as a volunteer for an Irish government funded organization in KwaZulu-Natal setting up clinics for HIV, Aids and TB within a squatter camp and in a remote rural area.
Having married in South Africa and with two children who were born there, all of whom are now, thankfully, living in Ireland, I developed a great love for South African and its entire people. On the other hand I am glad that we do not live there any longer, given the rapid increase in rates of violence and murder within South African society.

The National African American Forum was formed to address the concerns of the New Jim Crow ” Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
According to Michelle Alexander, New York Times Best Seller, and winner of the NAACP image award, states that the war on drugs during the Reagan Administration set into motion blatant discrimination within the caste system in the criminal justice system, education, economic development, housing, health, and the political process. According to Alexander individuals that was classified as a convicted felon after release could not receive public assistance in health, housing, and education, furthermore those individuals could not apply for loans to start a business, and did not have the right to vote.
A vast majority of those individuals were African Americans. Through new Jim Crow African Americans have been left behind in all institutions of life.
The National African American Forum is setting out to undo the wrongs of the New Jim Crow.

Good Deeds presents Author, entrepreneur and Leader Joyce Reed- REAL TALK ABOUT ALL FORMS VIOLENCE!
In the early 80's a young girl was born into a family that left her heartless, helpless and emotionless allowing her to always fin for herself; alone and barely loved. She grew up and experienced so many things that eventually allowed her to learn, forgive, forget and grow. Sharing my story to touch hearts of others that can relate to struggle, life's disappointments, abuse, deaths, and or betrayal; and come out with a positive attitude.
Using the words I recorded in journals and notebooks I kept as a young girl, I now bare my soul within these pages by sharing my truth. I share my personal struggles with the world to help others and give them the support and love I never felt as a young girl. I don’t want anyone to ever feel, what I felt growing up, but in my years of healing I realize that I am certainly not the only one. It was a lot of hurt and pain but there are ways to get through it, to do more than just survive. Reclaim your worth, your dignity, your SELF. He will see you through it, and He will put people in your path that will help along the way.
I am sharing my story with you, so others, who have judged me without knowing the silent pain that I carried, will finally understand. “Never judge a book by its cover, first open it and read it.” So as the Bible says, I am making it plain, and writing it on tablets--making my life that open book; a book that includes a vision of hope, faith and victory that many desire, but few have claimed.
At the end of my story, you will have cried, laughed, had chills or even gotten upset, feel hurt or feel loved. But at the very end of it all I want you to take my words, then write your own story, or rewrite your story with a new path of healing, love, and faith.
