Very happy Birthday dear Madiba! 18 July 2011

Madiba certainly knows the mesning of Katutura. In fact the Herero people dumped in a noman's land, by the white apartheid power, lamented, when they vere brutally deported from Windhoek: « Aikona Katutura » which means:

« For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come. »
Hebrews 13:14

At Robben Island Mandela certainly often thought: « Katutura », political prisoners won't be here forever! Yet there, he and his fellow prisonners employed all their time and love and energy to dream of, and to believe in, and to build our fragile and new Rainbow Nation democracy from Apartheid ashes!

So I thank him and we all thank this prophetic human being and we love him dearly and we will follow him!

Here find a thought or two from Madiba:
“Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future. Those who abuse them tear at the fabric of our society and weaken our nation.”
"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, why I will sleep for the eternity. » - Sapa
