Great leaders are remembered long after they leave political office – that’s what I keep learning
It’s 4 : 58 PM on day 674 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, publish my Disability of the Day feature, work, promote my Mandela Day initiative, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, promote my Mandela Day initiative some more -
@RainbowKate, @colettecaddle and @USMMariner have donated 4 bed nets between them hopefully 6 more nets will be donated by midnight GMT+2
Today is July 18 aptly declared Mandela Day by the United Nations in 2009 the whole country has joined together in wishing Mr. Mandela a happy birthday I’ve never seen anything like it it’s like we have all put aside our differences for one day for Nelson Mandela’s birthday I guess it is a testament to what kind of leader he was (and continues to be) if I become a tenth of the person he is I will have done well. Happy 94th birthday Mr. Mandela thank you for teaching me perseverance and forgiveness.
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
