“It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given,
that separates one person from another.”
Go well and in peace – at last Madiba!
True greatness reflects in the true use of power – and you managed to find a deep and profound forgiveness in your heart and soul…. and refused to give into hatred and anger.
It is love which carried you through – and it is the heart of a rainbow nation you won in the end…. because your wisdom shone through it all.
Go lion of Africa – your ancestors welcome you home to the Halls of Amneti…
And Africa is rising again….
Nkosi S’keleli Africa –
God bless Africa and sons and daughters….

Perhaps the Earth’s greatest leader, Nelson Mandela, has gone home to God but he left large footprints for all to follow. His path points in a clear direction, toward: love, forgiveness, trust and a rainbow world filled with diversity that honors uBuntu/Oneness. I am because You Are. Thank you Nelson Mandela for being the change we wish to see in the world. You were that.

if peace be the journey…
let this breath be the bridge.
let us seek not to win,
but to forgive.
not redemption, but to redeem.
not to hold, but to give.
let us seek not love,
but let us love…
be at peace, Nelson.
