“Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.”
His defiance of white minority rule and incarceration for fighting against segregation focused the world’s attention on apartheid, the legalised racial segregation enforced by the South African government. In a nation healing from the scars of apartheid, Mandela became a moral compass.
And with that said, today a great light has gone out in the world as we experience the loss of the world’s greatest freedom fighter who will be mourned by billions.
Rest in peace, Nelson Mandela. You will forever be a hero in our hearts.

DID HE TURN INTO A WEREWOLF BECAUSE HE SAW A FULL MOON. AS IN BARTS BUTT
Remember that time Chelsea and Raven got turnt up at school
Lawrence’s parents — her dad owned a construction business; the two now run a summer day camp-were initially less than thrilled with their daughter’s decision to become an actress.
When Lawrence was 14, she persuaded them to let her spend the summer in New York City going on auditions. As summer came to an end, her parents wanted her to come back home already. In the midst of their arguments, Lawrence happened to see a newspaper story about a boy from Kentucky starring in a new movie called Little Manhattan. “I was like, ‘Look, see? He’s from Kentucky and he made it’ I can do it too!’ And, weirdly, it helped them accept that this is what I wanted to do.”
That boy was Josh Hutcherson. In a nifty twist of fate, he’ll play Peeta, Lawrence’s favorite character from the Hunger Games trilogy.

Probably a huge factor as to why she is so close with Josh. Talk about fate. How beautiful.
