We weep. The sun rose again today, as it has always done but we sit and watch the news and cry for our Father of democracy. The man who did so much for so many people, who gave them an identity, a self-worth and the freedom to vote. We are South Africans.
We celebrate. We celebrate all all that he did and the way in which he went about his business. We salute you Mandela and the legacy you leave. We are South Africans.
We focus. We focus on the future and the lessons we have all learned. It is our challenge to continue to build South Africa and to forgive and be forgiven. We are South Africans.
