We were sitting at breakfast today at our hotel in Singapore, and I turned to face the tv to find horrific news about Madiba. I then shouted to my boyfriend that Nelson Mandela has passed away and burst into tears.
I wish I was in South Africa at this time, to share in celebrating the wonderful life that was Madiba.
I am honoured to have met him, and to come from the same country as him. A country that would not be the way it is today if it wasn’t for him.
Once again Nelson Mandela brings South Africa and even the world together!
United we shall stand.
