    In Memory of Nelson Mandela

    nelson170

    Dave reflects on Nelson Mandela:

    “Nelson Mandela emancipated a people and did so in such a way that his actions also emancipated their oppressors. He did not do it alone but it could not have happened without him. He showed no hatred or vengeance toward those who had murdered, tortured and terrorized his nation for generations. He saved a country and set an example for the rest of us which, if we choose to follow, will lead us to a better world.”

      May your music always inspire us to be a better person in world that seems to have lost the grace for which Mandela lived and the love of people, for even those whom have hatred in their hearts. Continue to give the world music that we can contextualize and use to live better lives and leave our hearts and minds open to change for the better.

      My favorite quote from Nelson Mandela: “It always seems impossible until it’s done”

      With just a little dignity and grace and a dash of love for your neighbor, we can make a better world.
      Thank you for posting such a lovely tribute to this truly beautiful human being.
