October 15,2012 was B.A.D…and the theme is “The Power of WE”…
What people can do/contribute when they work as a group towards a common goal.
I believe that Former South African President Nelson Mandela is the epitome of that.
He was able to bring a nation together in 1994
After 27 years on Robben Island prison,
he took over the reigns of our country
was able to get all of our citizens to work towards a common goal…
DEMOCRACY for all.
This is the face that the world has come to know and revere.
He, like no other before him,
has become the iconic symbol of freedom and unity.
Together with his wife Graca, he acknowledges the accolades of the crowd.
If only more people were like him.Humble, forgiving and striving for a better future.
To me he IS living proof of “The power of WE” encapsulated in one man, one vision!
I am truly grateful that I got to work with him on six occasions and each time I felt the “Madiba magic.”
My signed copy of his autobiography…
And from his final prison warder on the Island.
