An American born in 1970 can expect to reach the age of about 71. So just imagine the odds of living to 100 years old if you were born in 1918. Now imagine the odds for an African.

Nelson Mandela turns 95 today remains in the hospital is once again beating the odds! The beloved world figure and former President of South Africa is among an elite group of human beings for many, many reasons. Mandela served 27 years in prison, first on Robben Island, and later in Pollsmoor Prison and Victor Verster Prison. An international campaign lobbied for his release, which was granted in 1990 amid escalating civil strife. Becoming ANC President, Mandela published his autobiography and led negotiations with President F.W. de Klerk to abolish apartheid.

South Africans on Thursday celebrated Mandela’s birthday in different ways. The morning headline from the Citizen newspaper proclaimed “Happy Birthday!” while the Sowetan, another local paper, simply said: “95.”

For a baby born in America today, life expectancy is about 78 years old, and for babies born in 2020, it will be about 80. Many of us are already pushing past those age expectancies. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 400,000 Americans are over age 95.
