TRIBUTE TO NELSON MANDELA

Thursday, December 05, 2013

THE SOULS OF THIS EARTH PAST AND PRESENT WILL FEEL YOUR LOSS MR. NELSON MANDELA YOU HAVE FOUGHT FOR HUMANITY & HAVE SHOWED US WHAT TRUE LOVE AND BROTHERHOOD IS...HATE HAS NO ROOM IN OUR HEARTS OR THIS WORLD... WE HAVE SEEN THE PAIN AND DAMAGE IT HAS DONE TO OUR HUMANITY OUR SPIRITS TO OUR WORLD...IT IS BECAUSE OF YOUR LOVE, SACRIFICE & PERSEVERANCE THAT WE HAVE TO CARRY ON IN YOUR NAME THE FIGHT FOR EQUALITY FOR ALL OF HUMAN KIND...FOR WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE AS WE WILL ONE DAY FIND OUT.
REST IN PEACE MY BROTHER emoticon




I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended. Nelson Mandela






When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for eternity.
Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

    I remember one of the first freedom of the city he got was the City of Glasgow. They also named a square after him that had the South African consulate on it despite pressure from central government.
I remember standing on that square and saying no way should we be turning a blind eye to what was going on in South Africa.
One of the world's superstars.

  It is indeed a profound loss for all humanity that this gentle giant has entered the realm of Heaven.

He loved Tabletop Mt., a vista he saw right outside the prison. I can see he and Martin Luther King Jr. having quite the conversation!

Beautiful tribute.
