Nelson Mandela dies at 46,664 years. The father of the new tolerant and multiracial South Africa has died … No, a myth lives forever and the struggle for justice and dignity are eternal, because they are part of our deepest feelings.

For years Nelson Mandela was number 466/64 in Robben Island prison, which means he was prisoner number 466 of the year 1964.

Some people believe that numbers have magical meanings. If so, this number, 46664, has high hopes. Not only because it means the fight against the injustice of apartheid and racist sentiments but because in 2002, the Nelson Mandela Foundation launched the 46664 campaign to educate the world about HIV-AIDS.

Nelson Mandela don’t die at 95 years, although his life had long been held by a thread. Nelson Mandela will live 46664 years. R.I.P.

“Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I think I have made that effort and that, therefore, I sleep for all eternity.” Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mandela bio ** (Umtata, Transkei, 1918 – Johannesburg, 2013) South African politician who led the movement against apartheid and, after a long struggle and 27 years in prison, presided over the first government in 1994 ending the regime racist.

His inspiration was the nonviolence of Gandhi.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Nelson Mandela.
