"He was one of the three people I wanted to meet in my life and I got a chance to meet him. And this is about the celebration of his life for me... Almost a third of his life in prison, and to come out and to forgive the people that put you there and rise to power and not use that power against them, that is a wonderful person who is a lesson to all humanity. We're very fortunate to be on the planet the same time he was." Actor/director Tyler Perry pays tribute to Nelson Mandela, who passed away last week (begs02Dec13) at the age of 95.
