Across the globe, people are paying tribute to Nelson Mandela who died Thursday.
Here's what it sounds like on many of the streets in South Africa--
FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports from Johannesburg where mourners are remembering Mandela in the square named after him:
The young and the old are quietly filing through Mandela Square here in Johannesburg, laying flowers and admiring the large Mandela statue here under the twinkling Christmas lights. The small are gripping their parents hands, receive history lessons, while many pose for photographs, raising their fist in the air-- the iconic move Mandela did when he walked out of prison in 1990, after 27 years there. The police are trying to control the crowds, which are for the most part still quite small. But this is only just the beginning of a nation that will mourn for many days to come.
