On February 2, 1990, prison number 46664 (four, double six, six, four) was released. This event was heard from around the world! From the slums to the cities, from the streets to the country sides.
46664 is the greatest hero in our generation. The greatest survivor, role model, and legend. Is it Superman, Wonder Woman, or Batman? Nope, none of those. Spiderman? Wrong. So who's 46664, you ask?
That number belonged to Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela is the living legend, survivor, role model, and super human. Mandela spent 27 years in prison in Africa. That amount of time was almost a third of his life! And you know what? Not one day in prison was he ungrateful. Not one day did he stop fighting for what he believed in. Nelson believed he could give the black majority the right to vote. And every single day, he thought about how he could make it happen. He never gave up! That's what makes him so special.
