Remembering Madiba

A year ago today we lost the most iconic man to have graced the earth in the past century. Not only was he a politician, president and freedom fighter- his intelligence and kindness of spirit as well as his gentle and enormous heart, made for a man capable of penning the most insightful and thought provoking words, he loved his family and comrades with every ounce of who he was. He taught us that it is possible to treat every person as equal and that one should remain the same person wether in the spotlight or dining alone with a friend. South Africa was his passion, he freed this country not only for himself but for his people, each of us, as well as for generations to come. I am so glad that in his lifetime he got to see his dreams and wishes achieved although everything he wanted has been put asunder – it is a shame that this heroes work has become little more then something we can admire and appreciate albeit looking back and not on at this countries present state. We should always hold to heart his quotes and even if we achieve these in our own homes and simple lives, we live up to and pay tribute to the amazing, incredible Nelson Mandela. “At the southern tip of the continent, a rich reward is in the making, an invaluable gift is in the preparation, for those who suffered in the name of all humanity when they sacrificed everything – for liberty, peace, human dignity and human fulfillment.
“The value of our shared reward will and must be measured by the joyful peace which will triumph, because of the common humanity that bonds both black and white into one human race, will have said to each one of us that we shall all live like the children of paradise.” #RememberingMadiba #NelsonMandela #RipMadiba #Legend
