Nelson Mandela was a huge historical and influential figure in Africa. He was a major figure in the ending of Apartheid. He started out with violent protest. This landed him in jail. After he spent 27 years in false imprisonment, he helped the last white South African president abolish Apartheid laws and create a new and equal constitution. He then went on the be the first black president of South Africa.
This is one that stopped me in my tracks when I seen this image. This is without a doubt one of the most moving tributes I've come across.... and I have seen many! This beautiful image " American Sacrifice" was created by DJ Florek. DJ's work can be view or purchased at Fine Art America. And again..... Thank you DJ for creating such a memorable piece, and remembering our Fallen Heros, and those that serve us each and every day!
