Homage to Madiba

Hola!  I wanted to/needed to pause and pay homage to an icon, fighter and striver of our time—Nelson Mandela.  The former South African President died today at the age of 95.  He was the first black Africa to hold the presidency office in his country—wow can you believe that!  Mr. Mandela leaves behind family, friends and countrymen that loved him dearly, as well as a legacy that will on forever.

If you don’t know all that this man sacrificed for the people of South Africa and worldwide then please read (don’t just see the movie) his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom.  This book was mostly written in secrecy in his jail cell where he was wrongfully imprisoned for 27 years.  It is necessary that we share his legacy with our children so that they can pass it on to theirs.

May you rest in paradise Madiba. ❤
