Nelson Mandela’s death has resonated through the hearts of millions around the globe — an inarguable truth as tens of thousands admirers filled the Johannesburg stadium to commemorate the great anti-apartheid activist and the founder of modern South Africa. The tribute housed a plethora influential figures  from China to Zimbabwe. Representing the U.S., the Bush and Clinton families were in attendance along with former president Jimmy Carter and, of course, President Obama.

Obama, after a 16-hour trip to South Africa from Washington, delivered a grandiose eulogy that delved into Mandela’s inspirational legacy that left a momentous mark in our history. “The world thanks you for sharing Nelson Mandela with us,” he said to South Africans. “We will never seen the likes of Nelson Mandela again.” With his wife Michelle seated nearby, Obama received a standing ovation for his speech. All of the President’s gestures were watched closely.
