    Madiba's Vision


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jhliu02 and his wife were at South Africa's Table Mountain National Park with their baby son in 2012, when this moment occurred. 'We were passing a couple with their son who suddenly approached my son reached out and touched him. They looked at each other and shared this moment. Children are amazing because they see the world with such purity and innocence. Their curiosity drives them to explore the world around them without any bias.' He was inspired to share the photo as a Nelson Mandela remembrance because, he said, 'I was inspired by the vision that Mr. Mandela had for a "rainbow nation". His belief that hate is something learned and not an intrinsic value. This photo conveys that message that a new generation can come together, filled with the love and hope innate in all people.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    On a visit to the top of Table Mountain with my wife and son, who is half Chinese, half Brazilian(European Decent). He was approached by this beautiful baby boy. To me this is the vision of the world Mr. Mandela would be proud to see.
