Remembering the Life of Nelson Mandela July 18, 1918-December 5, 2013

Today is a Celebration of Life for those living in South Africa because today would have been Nelson Mandela 96th Birthday BUT even though he is gone his legacy lives on in the lives he has impacted. I know for sure that Nelson Mandela which is known to Million ALL over as Tata Madiba has truly impacted my life as an African American young woman. He taught me to be strong and fearless in the face of unjustice to stand your ground NO MATTER WHAT and if you have a voice USE IT to speak the oracles that will build up our society and communities NOT tear it down or stoop down to others societal level,these are ALL the qualities that Mandela encompass. So on today has I reflect on the life of Mandela I'm reminded by a quote that Mandela said ,"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall." HAPPY BIRTHDAY TATA MADIBA!
