Murals and painting of Mandela are emblazoned on Brazilian builings and there are even streets named after him. Though Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela died today, Brazil’s love for Mandela, like that of the and the entire world’s will ensure he lives on.

Na segunda viagem de Mandela ao Brasil, ele foi citado dizendo que “foi quase sufocado por tanto amor.” O líder premiado nobel é bem conhecido por sua história pessoal de lutar contra o apartheid na África do Sul (incluindo ser preso) à sua liderança como um ativista contra o racismo, por seu trabalho com HIV / AIDS, como o ex-presidente da África do Sul, e para espalhar seus meassages de paz, igualdade e amor em todo o mundo. Murais e pintura de Mandela são estampadas em builings brasileiros e há mesmo ruas com o seu nome. Embora Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela morreu hoje, o amor do Brasil por Mandela, como a do e todo o mundo vai garantir que ele vive.
