Nelson Mandela,

So daring, yet a man of uncompromising integrity. We watched in awe as you continuously gave hope to a disheartened people, a generation living under a régime that betrayed them.

A man most of us never came in contact with, yet  were inspired and intrigued by your character, your unwavering courage and your will made of iron.

Your vision for the liberation of the people of Africa were tied to our dreams and aspirations not only for your generation but for the generations to follow.

Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela, a man, a father, a brother, a friend, a husband, a peacemaker, a leader, a son, an elder, a servant, a warrior, our hero, the father of our African continent, you had (and will always have) our deepest respect, gratitude and admiration. We deeply THANK YOU and do not take anything you've done for granted. Today, as we mourn your death, we also celebrate your extraordinary life Madiba, for it will continuously enrich Africa and the world’s generations to come.
