Happy Birthday Madiba!

happy birthday

 

Today marks the 95th birthday of South Africa’s father of democracy.  Happy birthday Madiba!

Thank you for all the sacrifices you made to bring us where we are today!

Thank you for all your selfless acts, acts which brought democracy and unity to our country!

On this day I can’t help but think about the 27 birthdays you spent incarcerated.  I wonder how those birthdays were spent?  I wonder how you felt when you had your first birthday as a free man in a democratic country?  I wonder how many of us would have the strength to leave the bitterness behind and do all in our power to move the country forward, in unity?

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. On a quest to find my happy-ever-after, I am in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you!
