Words Crush Wednesday – Nelson Mandela Edition

Some things have been going on lately that have made me think about anger, hostility and resentment and how it festers into hatred if left to stew. I keep reminding myself of Tata Madiba, our national (and international) hero, a man who was, and always will be, the epitome of forgiveness, courage, dedication and tenacity. It is sometimes good (and necessary) to remind oneself how how much other people have been through, and not just survived but triumphed. To many people, Madiba’s struggles may have seemed insurmountable had they been in his position, and yet the man became a beacon of hope and love. Let us all learn from him and in doing so, honour his legacy. This week’s Words Crush Wednesday is dedicated to him.
