White = good, superior, desirable. Black = bad, inferior, undesirable. Colonial mentality and racism have plagued many countries for centuries; we cannot even pretend we already live in a world where these prejudices no longer exist. But once in a while, there are people who come along and dare hope for change.

Nelson Mandela's tribal name, Rolihlahla, was a Xhosa word that colloquially meant "troublemaker." Indeed, he knew that in order to cause change in a society where injustices are seen as the norm, one cannot simply sit idly by. One must cause a stir, one must challenge these norms.

This post is a small tribute to Mandela's life. He who, like most heroes, did not set out to be one; who simply dreamed to see equality among people of all colors and gave all that he had for this dream to come true. He who, despite suffering in the hands of his oppressors, was not embittered by his experiences, and instead remained forgiving and positive.

Rest in peace, Madiba.
