南非前总统曼德拉告别“光辉岁月”,影响力却不会消失。
       Nelson Mandela,South Africa’s firstblack president who was aninternational icon of peace and racial equality, has died at the age of95.
  Announcing the news on South African national TV,President Jacob Zuma(祖玛)said,“Our nation has lost its greatest son.”
  Mr.Mandela led South Africa’s transition from white-minority rule(少数白人统治)in the 1990s.He managed to bring down the policy of racial segregation(种族隔离)while avoiding a civil war.For his fight against inequality,the man had been kept in prison for27years.Mr.Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in1993.He became South Africa’s first black president in1994.
  Mr.Mandela spent nearly seven decades fighting for freedom and equality.He inspired and challenged the world to stand up for others.As word of his death spread,political leaders and people around the world spoke about the life and legacy of the former South African leader.
  “He achieved more than could be expected of any man,”U.S.President Barack Obama said at the White House shortly after the announcement of Mr.Mandela’s death.“He no longer belongs to us.He belongs to the ages(时代).”
  Terry Mokoena,a resident in Johannesburg (约翰内斯堡),was among crowds of people who gathered to mourn Mr.Mandela’s death and celebrate his legendary life.“We are celebrating his life and all that he did for us,”said Mokoena.“I am happy that he is now at peace...Mandela united us—black,white,colored and Indian—he taught us togetherness.”
