Nelson Mandela Dies at 95

Former South African President Nelson Mandela, the global statesman who delivered South Africa from the dark days of apartheid, has died aged 95. This is the breaking new on TV as I watch South African President Jacob Zuma’s speech as he confirmed the news that Nelson Mandela has died.

Nelson Mandela  is a huge inspiration. A well respected political icon that will be remembered by many generations to come especially those in Africa. He was a Nobel Peace Prize mainly for being an apartheid fighter to president and unifier. Farewell to you sir! Praying for God’s comfort to your immediate family and the to nations of Africa.

“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.” ? Nelson Mandela

The Life Philosophy of Nelson Mandela “Invictus”

Inspiration from Invictus, with Morgan Freeman & Matt Damon

This is a Poem ‘Invictus’ (Unconquered, Undefeated) by William Henley. Great South African Leader Nelson Mandela (Madiba) was inspired by the poem, and had it written on a scrap of paper on his prison cell while he was incarcerated for 27 years on Robben Island.

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
