Nelson Mandela: Your memories
He's in a better place now, a place where hatred and racism doesn't exist!
First of all, I never thought that I would be so sad by hearing about the passing of someone I never met in person, but I think it's because through the years I've occupied myself with almost everything there's to know about this great man, so it feels as if I've known him for years, is a weird and strange feeling, which is very difficult to explain.
So yes, I'm in tears and deep sadness as I write this down, but I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one and not just simply because one of my greatest heroes has gone home, but because the "good people" of this World has lost a genuine servant and soon they wil all start to realize that one of God's greatest and bravest man has passed away.
So even though his great example and message of peace and brotherhood will last forever, his physical work on this planet is finished, but I firmly believe that he's in a better place now, a place where hatred and racism doesn't exist and where his beautiful brown skin color isn't an issue as it sadly was here on earth, instead he will be received as a true servant of God's people and he shall be seated at the majestic table of the Almighty Creator, alongside with "Martin Luther King Jr.", brother "Malcolm X", "Steven Biko", "Tula", "Patrice Lumumba", "Mother Theresa", "Bob Marley" and many more of the World's bravest son and daughters.
