Today is Tata Madiba’s birthday, and the world is getting together to celebrate by spending 67 minutes of their time doing something for the vulnerable members of society.
Has anyone in the last century inspired so many people to love? Every Mandela Day, my hope is that the spirit of kindness, generosity and consideration for our fellow human beings will spread to become a basic element of our daily existence.
The words of this song written by Johnny Clegg mean “We have not seen him, we have not seen Mandela, in the place where he is, in the place where he is kept.”
Happy Mandela Day, and remember that caring for others is a lifestyle, not an event of 67 minutes.
