Nelson, may you rest in peace brother

I had a chat with the kids tonight about the passing of Nelson Mandela and like whenever Miss E hears about someone dying she gets very sad. I had to remind her that Nelson is now in the best place ever and he is reunited with Jesus.

Nelson Mandela was a man who inspired a generation and showed us that average and ordinary people can make a difference. It won't always be easy and it won't always be fun but it will be worth it.

I love that quote above from Nelson, there are so many I could have chosen as he spoke such sense during his 95 years here on earth but this one sits really well with me. You'll know that I am a supporter of the ONE Campaign and I think they embody this - they have vision and they take action and one day we really will see the end to extreme poverty, I feel sure of it. -
