Remembering a hero..

I recall from teachings a long time ago that a hero is a person who struggles for a cause.

…a few words

...........
………..

Forever in a day Mr. Nelson Mandela,

You had your friends,
and enemies as well as highs and lows. I can say this, can anyone sacrifice 27yrs of your life for a cause?

A cause of freedom, nothing short.

It could had been a lot better for the people; the Africans in South Africa but as I said again, who could sacrifice 27yrs of your life for a cause?

I will be here waiting for an answer.

Safe journey Mr. Nelson Mandela, true souljah!

…now it is time for others to take the lead where he and some more whose names escapes national conscious left off.
