    Shortly after news broke about former South African president Nelson Mandela’s death this evening, President Barack Obama made a statement about the loss of the universally acclaimed leader.

    “He achieved more than could be expected of any man,” Obama said in his live address. “We have lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with.”

    Obama described how he himself had been inspired by the example set by Mandela: ”Like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example set by Nelson Mandela.”

    Many other former presidents and other political leaders have been issuing a number of statements and tweets, offering their condolences to the nation of South Africa.
