While researching on Nelson Mandela I found out a bunch of new facts about him. The biggest thing that surprised me was that he was actually jailed for nearly 30 years and still has accomplished everything that he has. More can be found out about him on this site I found http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/people/nelson_mandela.
The Dalai Lama was born on July 6, 1935 and took political power of Tibet at age 15. That same year he took power the People's Republic of China invaded that same year which caused him to flee to northern India fearing assassination. He has sense then tried to make a Tibetan state inside the People's Republic of China but the Chinese has shown no signs of moving forward with it. He is a great person that promotes peace wherever he goes.
