    I think people say this is so great because it is showing how much the kids care for elderly people in their region. Nelson Mandela I think is an inspirational story teller/author because the little kid has a book in his hand and it says the guys name so that’s what I think. I think he writes stories of magnificent stories about peoples lives that have suffered some sort of condition or something involving with stress because when authors write about them things they get quite popular.
    This that are OUTSTANDING!!!!
    Kids are singing happy birthday but most kids don’t do that for their fellow elderly
    I haven’t seen many building or walls that have their flag and representing peace. Thats a good place to set the photo. I think its the first I have seen. 🙂 Personally I would put more kids in the picture so it shows the childhood community in their fantastic country! It shows how much they entirely care.

    I think that people think that this is great because in the photo you can see that the children care so much about the elderly in their village. I think that it is amazing how long he had lived for. Nelson Mandela is insparational because he has lived this long. This is amazing how long he has lived for. 
    I would if added more children an more adults to show the community a bit more. I think it is good where they have placed the photos because it shows there flag and it looks like there is a mermorial as well next to it. 
    I have search the name up and it came up with some quotes that he has said here is a couple, 
    “I can rest only for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not yet ended.”
    Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the earth.

    I think these people think that this birthday is great because Nelson could best very popular on their countrie.
    He is 94 and they might best calabrating a big because 94 is a bery good age to live up to. An other way you could say it is that they might of known Nelson for a long time and they were shocked that he made it and is still is going at 94. I also think that the people thought it was outstanding because, it looks like in my opinion Nelson is a REALLY famous author and these people love books! That’s why I think they are so amazed outstanded because he is 94! I don’t think I can celabrate more different thank just giving presents, singing happy birthday and eating a birthday cake!:)I think he is there most important in there world because he could be a medic that writes bookd and hopefully you know that medics are.
