righteousness they ply their way

CONDOLENCES ON HIS PASSING: 'MADIBA'
When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe i have made that effort and that is, therefore, i will sleep for the eternity
--Nelson Mandela 1918-2013

Planet earth has given up a great servant (Nov 5th 2013); rest in peace Mr Nelson Mandela

Such a wonderful blogpost. I like to think Nelson Mandela sits with my haiku-friend Joe Spado, drinking and laughing and telling stories… I believe the spirits of these wise men will always be among us.

Gillena Cox said...

Indeed, Marit; happy you dropped in
