JOHANNESBURG (AP) The world is celebrating Nelson Mandela Day with acts of community service and messages of goodwill to the former South African president who remains hospitalized on his 95th birthday. Here are some of the international events:
UNITED NATIONS: The U.N. hosted an informal General Assembly in honor of Mandela which was addressed by former United States President Bill Clinton and co-prisoner and Mandela friend Andrew Mlangeni. U.N. staff also helped to rebuild homes in Long Island destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
WASHINGTON: The Congressional Black Caucus celebrated the life and legacy of Mandela at the Emancipation Hall in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center. House Speaker John Boehner and South Africa's ambassador to the United States Ebrahim Rasool were among guests slated to speak at the ceremony.

until the burning tire smoke clears.
amazing who and what gets worhsipped these days by the media and its underlings in gubamint and high office.
I’ll make sure I burn a tire in his honor.
Shall we have the ceremonial necklacing in tribute?
Heard this earlier. Wish I had some artistic skills. A cake with 95 necklaced Africans would make a good political cartoon.
I know there’s absolutely nothing to back this up. But, I’ve always thought that long-lived people either had an Angel on their soldier, or a Devil.
I’m giving my horse a much needed enema in celebration.
Naturally the “Third World” and its degenerate Western supporters, celebrate one of the conquerors of a Western Nation.
I thought he died.
Reince Priebus....RNC Chair wished him a Happy Birthday on Twitter today......SICK
Not bowing at that alter.
no just those who had been around when he planted a bomb and trust me about99% of people who I meet think Mandela is one great guy nad have no idea e was also a terrorist
Figures. Necklacing for all!
“no just those who had been around when he planted a bomb and trust me about99% of people who I meet think Mandela is one great guy nad have no idea e was also a terrorist”
I see the same thing.
These people who have some sort of idol worship for Mandela do not acknowledge that Mandela rather than fight Apartheid through a legitimate democratic process instead turned to violent means.
If Mandela were a true “statesman,” he would have used the South African ballot box starting way back in the 1950’s to win himself political office.
Commie day!!!! murderers day!!!!! Lets all get out our tires place them around our necks and light them up.
Che will have company in hell...two heroes meet.
Only the good die young. :-)
