Nelson 'Madiba' Mandela Remembered

Nelson  Mandela: the embodiment of a freedom's dream realized.

Madiba: The iconic  leader in the struggle against apartheid. Today, South Africa's most honored  citizen. Incarcerated. Resurrected with spirit intact. A political prisoner who rose out of shackles and removed the shackles of black South Africans.  His meteoric rise to power, encompassed the imagination of suffering African people around the world.

Mandela: The first Black South African president, transitioned from incarcerated terrorist to a triumphant miracle dismantling  white supremacy in South Africa.

Nelson Mandela: A formidable agent of change,  unwavering in a resolve to end separate and unequal criminal oppression. Embracing former repressive  enemies in a reconciliation for peace.  

South African President Mandela: secured justice and equality for the masses avoiding  a civil war. Father, husband, lawyer, leader,  countryman and Nobel Peace Prize recipient. "Spear of the nation" who eviscerated racism.

Nelson Mandela: The emergent revolutionary of the 20th Century, inspiring millions to seek peaceful solutions to the injustice of a nation's oppression of its citizens.                                 

This moral evolution must spread throughout America and the universe.  In that way Mandela's life will not have been in vain.    

Rest in Peace, Madiba.
