Its Friday, Act Like It!- The Mandela Spirit

I am amazed at how there are these people who come into the world just like we do, of a mother and father;

but unlike most of us, at some point in their lives, they come to this unequaled realization that their sole purpose for being here is for the salvation of a people… of humanity.

Just the thought of the immensity of the life and spirit Nelson Mandela puts in prospective that even though he is gone, we are still here and I think we are all graced with a certain portion of the Mandela Spirit.

And it is our responsibility to continue in our purposes whatever our contribution and to do so gladly.

This day marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. I would be born 5 months later but I soon came to understand how important this day was, not only to this Country but to all of humanity.  In school we would sing songs and have plays in celebration of this day. We would have competitions for who would get to recite the “I Have A Dream” speech. I learned today that the words “I Have A Dream” were not apart of the original speech but they came to him during the speech…”he’d given himself over to the spirit of the moment”. Check out this inspiring article, “How Martin Luther King Improvised ‘I Have A Dream’ by Carmine Gallo.  I am so grateful for this great day and to Dr. King for his purpose and sacrifice  to us all.
