Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, a hero, a savior and an inspiration. Is now gone. But While the world mourns him we should focus on what he accomplished while he was alive.

First of all when the Apartheid started he rebelled protesting and making speeches in secret. he used hideouts and disguises to mask his real self but never the less he was always found at the top of the government watch list.

When he was finally caught and sentenced for 27 years things started to get better. When his sentence was about done his sentence ended and it was a better thing than you think because the new white president (De Klerk) thought that Mandela was right and that the blacks should be treated equal.

Now that Nelson was out of prison he and De Klerk made South Africa a better place.

So while the rest of the world mourns him you can join them but think of what he did achieve.

Parent Interview

I interviewed my parents about there culture and how they live, here is a brief summary of what they said.
Our parents lived in a very different world then the one we live in today, but what did they use and what type of techmology did they use?
Some of the things that were similar were what they had, it might have looked different or been called different names but they used the technology they had the same way.
Now on the other hand there were some things that were very different. Like what type of things they played with, for example they might have read a book or played soccer were we would have gotten on the phone to talk. Another way things were different is because they didn't have alot of the tech that we have today they only barley had TV's when they were our age now we have iPads or phones when we are very young.
Some things that  might surprise you is if you wanted to give some one an urgent message that is far away you would have to send letters that might take days to weeks to get there and you might be giving them a urgent message like the the king of great britain did to the british in the new world.
