Nelson Mandela is an iconic figure in South Africa and the world, his legacy should be kept alive as an example of the difference self sacrifice can do to a country and its people.

Nelson Mandela Day should be recognised as a public holiday to give those who want to celebrate the day a chance to do so. It is also necessary because it will allow organisations of people looking to give back to others a better chance at recruiting those interested in helping out.
