Nelson Mandela

Posted by purplemary54 on December 5, 2013

No song today.

Just a few months ago, I was posting about Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday.  Now he is dead.  It’s not as devastating as losing my father was, but it’s pretty damn close.

I admired Mandela more than just about anybody.  I admired the dignity and grace and graciousness in the way he lived his life, especially after his release from prison.  He was a hero to millions, including me, and a symbol of peace and freedom.

I believe in the freedom he fought so hard for.  And I can only hope that someday, everyone will have that freedom.
