World Marks Nelson Mandela Day on His 93rd Birthday

The world honored former South African President Nelson Mandela on Monday, July 18 for his 93rd birthday.
The annual Nelson Mandela Day celebration was held to promote community service and giving back. People were asked to perform 67 minutes of service in their area to honor each year of Mandela’s public service.
Well, this news is kinda late making it to the website because Monday was also MY birthday. So, in my commitment to .. ::ahem:: .. honor Nelson … I took the day off. LOL!
Anyway, Mr. Mandela celebrated the day with family and cake at his rural South African home. Schoolchildren sang “Happy Birthday” to him on Monday morning.
