Today we celebrate Nelson Mandela Day on Madiba's 94th Birthday, you have the opportunity to wish him Happy Birthday and make a pledge, you may even get the chance to present the Pledge Book to the Nelson Mandela Foundation in South Africa...
Today 18th July 2012, is Nelson "Madiba" Mandela's 94th Birthday, a day of celebration not just for Madiba's birthday but a day to reflect on his legacy to the world. Today is otherwise known as Nelson Mandela Day, a day that is primarily celebrated in South Africa but should be celebrated and recognised world wide since he is in my opinion, the greatest living human being and one of the greatest human beings that has walked the earth. A man that I have wilfully studied in great depth, a man I have the utmost respect for, I certainly feel honoured to have lived during the time that his legacy has been brought unto the world, if I had one wish, it would be to shake hands with the man I may very well call, father. Since like my father, he has taught me so much about how to be a person with vision and understanding, to treat people with the respect and care that they deserve, to appreciate and live life in a way that has a positive effect on society. He truly is a living legend.
Before I carry on I'd like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADIBA!!!
