    An Incredible Man

    What a human being.  He was jailed in South Africa for 27 years, during Apartheid, and not only survived but then became their president.  Incredible.  What can you really say about a person like that?

    Mandela! Yay!

    Have you read his book, the Long Road To Freedom? What a man, what a person, he is one of my heroes. Extraordinary, very moving. Very humbling.

    "it Takes A Whole Village....."

     Because he one said "It takes a whole village to raise a child".  After hearing this I knew I needed to ask for help as a single parent, and I did not need to feel inadequate as a lone mum.

    A Truly Great Man

      Mandela’s autobiography is titled Long Walk to Freedom. I have not read it (yet), but the title is as wise as the man himself. It echoes the struggle of his race as well as his individual life. I believe in his goal of ending apartheid, and I am glad that it was...
