Mandela, the greatest ever

Mandela – a great presence

Can you imagine it? A  man whose message was one of love, behind bars for 25 years, before by popular acclaim he was released, and became the President of South Africa. 

White Europeans have an awful lot to ask forgiveness for!
If you can listen on sound, I play a tribute to his spirit.

This message may be published during Nelson Mandela’s last hours on planet earth, and if it is my actions will be replicated by millions of people in hundreds of different languages. 

Mine is but one homage to the greatest man  the 20th century gave birth to, as an icon to under-privileged people everywhere.

For 18 years Mandela was incarcerated on Robben Island, a place of of banishment from the ruling (white) class in South Africa, in isolation and imprisonment, a few miles west of Cape Town. Incredibly, Mandela was then imprisoned for another 7 years. 
And incredibly, taken from today’s perspective, we all looked on.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
