Today is a day of sorrow, many weeping hearts that face the lost of a great man. Today an extraordinary man passed, leaving behind a legacy, a lesson, an example that will spring forth and grow in the character of some who can remember what he stood for, how he lived and what he inspired and appreciate him. A man who bore many trails and handled them with forgiveness and grace. Nelson Mandela you live in the hearts of those you lead, those who admired you and those who respected you. You will be missed, but you will live on in every person who chooses to take the moral high road. Rest In Peace In The Kingdom God has prepared for you! Your journey hasn’t ended, everyone who walks in humility in his or her freedom is climbing another hill fro you!
I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.
