A man I feel indebted to and will love and honour for as long as I live has passed away.
Nelson Mandela died just before 9pm last night in his houghton home (5 December 2013).
I dont really know what to say other than I feel a sense of loss as if one of my own beloved family had passed. I will mourn as our country will mourn and I will honour as the world will honour the greatest man of our time.
THANK YOU MADIBA, YOU WERE A FATHER TO US ALL.
In Nelson Mandela’s own words:
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
“There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
