There are some lights that will never dim, some roads that have no end, and some stories that will live on forever. I am truly humbled to salute and honor a man whose every step cleared a path of peace and victory upon which the rest of the world may now travel.
Although he shared an intimate relationship with adversity, Nelson Mandela refused to internalize bitterness and contempt- instead his life gave words to the voiceless and was a fight for the frail.
In taking the time to reflect upon this giant among men, we should all feel proud that his light shined during our lifetimes. Because of Nelson Mandela, each of us can all say that we have been touched by true greatness.
In his words- “Death is something inevitable. 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 the eternity.” ~ Nelson Mandela 1996
“R.I.P Nelson Mandela, and thank you for all the contribution you did in this world. You will be missed here, at the same time now Heaven has gained a new Angel in you. Take care, you are the best.” Standing Bear Thunder Heart
