Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black head of state, a freedom fighter who years after his death continues to inspire the world with a life well lived, is being honoured today, July 18, the Nelson Mandela International Day.

The anti-apartheid revolutionary is being celebrated in South Africa and throughout the world for choosing beach and love and justice when it mattered.

Mandela, who was born today in 1918, urged us all to step up and contribute our quota to humanity, leaving the world better than we left it. His words of wisdom and his extraordinary courage and integrity continue to act as permission to millions who wish to make enduring change. And, today, his legacy is being remembered and honoured.

Check out what people have to say about the great Madiba.

Happy Mandela Day, guys!
