Today is a sad day.. I woke up and the first thing I hear on the news is that our beloved Nelson Mandela has died. I will miss your smile, the music behind your moves and words and that powerful energy that you represented.
Mandela’s legacy is a huge intangible.. how do you measure Forgiveness? How much can cost a reconciliation of an entire country? There is no words, no figures, to hold all he -and his followers- did. And not only for South Africa, they set an example and we should never forget that vengeance is not the way out.
I have been in South Africa twice and I loved it. It is a country with amazing landscapes, smiling and happy people, colourful contrasts .. When you visit the Apartheid Museum you realised how difficult was the situation, how terrible.. it was not easy task to change the minds and the consciousness of an entire country used to play certain roles and perpetuate them.
To my brave hero,.. Mandela, Madiba, 46664 Prisoner, .. Rest in peace. Now it is our mission to keep up what you started and as you said..
“It always seems impossible until it is done”.
And because he was a music lover and so I am, I want to share this video of this U2 song that we are going to hear a lot as it is the soundtrack of the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom that just released a week ago. The lyrics are just beautiful.
Lots of Luv,
