Scenes from a funeral: Nelson Mandela

By: Doug O'Neill

Free the Children Founder Craig Kielburger delivers a heartfelt message from South Africa Craig Kielburger needs no introduction to the Canadian Living audience. Neither, for that matter, does the amazing hero the world so recently lost, Nelson Mandela. Craig, who, with his brother Marc, now writes a regular column in Canadian Living, travelled to South Africa to  attend the memorial services of his personal hero. Part of Craig's intention, in addition to honouring the memory of his much-loved friend, was to provide a unique youth perspective and amplify the voice of young people in this historic time of change for the African continent – and our world. Here are some images taken by Free the Children photographer Michael Rajzman. But, first,  we invite you to listen to this personal video message from Craig Kielburger in which he speaks directly to the followers of Canadian Living, and to the admirers of Nelson Mandela. Their shared message is touching – and timely.   Free The Children co-founder Craig Kielburger talks to youth in Gauteng Province, South Africa Criag Kielburger at Nelson Mandela's funeral Craig Kielburger, co-founder of Free The Children, signs the book of condolences in Nelson Mandela Square Craig Kielburger book of condolence Free The Children co-founder Craig Kielburger chats with councillor Vella Gwadiso from Mvezo, during the funeral proceedings for Nelson Mandela Craig Kielburger Nelson Mandela's funeral Craig Kielburger holds up the front page of the Pretoria News commemorating the death of Nelson Mandela while standing at the corner of Madiba Street and Steve Biko Road.
