What Made Nelson Mandela Mandela?

So why did the world come to a standstill when he passed away? Why did every news media company that matters write about him? I don’t think it was simply because he became the president of a country on the tip of Africa. We all know the history about his struggle for freedom, but there is more to this man, who was a living global icon. Mandela was one of the few leaders capable of inspiring confidence both inside and outside South Africa. Few others would have managed to unite the disparate warring parties and steer South Africa from what seemed to be the brink of civil war. Mandela is equally known for taking a strong stand against the giant world powers — especially in defense of human rights and democracy.
