I have sad news to report...Nelson Mandela, the former South African President, has passed away and his Memorial was held today. All of the Dignitaries including President Obama were in attendance. You can read the article in the NY Times Online edition.
“To the people of South Africa — people of every race and every walk of life — the world thanks you for sharing Nelson Mandela with us,” President Obama said. “His struggle was your struggle. His triumph was your triumph. Your dignity and hope found expression in his life, and your freedom, your democracy, is his cherished legacy.”
and the Historic handshake that rocked the nation was made at the Mandela Memorial between President Obama and Cuba's Raul Castro. You can check out the USA Today Online article here.
