2013-12-09 16:26
The Mandela family is most certainly not the only ones who have lost a loved one. Since the late hours of Thursday evening, 5 December 2013, the whole world seems to be grieving.  

Flights plans have been made, thousands of bouquets of flowers laid and countless letters of condolences written in respect to the world’s most influential leader - Tata Nelson Mandela.

While it is no consolation, it must be such a rewarding feeling for the Mandela family to know that Nelson Mandela’s life and death, contributed to world unity.

Today’s photo of the day, by Instagram user, pappy_e, captures one of the many symbolic tributes paid to Madiba.
