Today marks the first anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s passing. It’s a bittersweet feeling because on the one hand we would have wanted him to still be around and inspire us with his wisdom but on the other we celebrate a life well lived. He did his part in making sure that South Africans unite and live in freedom and about death in his own words he said…
We celebrate the fact that he was content with the way he lived his life and he was content to finally take his last breath. As he said, death is something inevitable so we shall not forever mourn. We will, however, always live in the South Africa that he helped to liberate and we will always draw inspiration from the example.
