It’s a sad, sad day here on earth. Nelson Mandela’s passing has caused an outpouring of emotion. As South Africa and the world mourn their beloved Madiba, the angels in heaven are rejoicing.
Mandela we thank you for having the courage that so few ever could.
We thank you for your selflessness.
We thank you for your fight to ascertain peace between blacks and whites.
We thank you for your fight to unite humanity.
We thank you for your quest to end poverty.
We thank you for your determination and perseverance.
We thank you for your passion that burned within.
We thank you simply for being you.
Madiba, you have left a footprint on the hearts of many the world over. May your voice echo in our ears for a lifetime and may your spirit forever be with us. You may be gone from this world, but you will never be forgotten. May the ancestors greet you with open arms Madiba. Rest now, forever in eternal peace.
