Nelson Mandela

When I heard the news my mind immediately turned to these words of Mandela taken from his book ‘The Long Walk to Freedom’ which Karl Jenkins set to music in his work, The Peacemakers.

Let there be justice for all, let there peace for all, let there be work, water and salt for all.

Nelson Mandela


Now his long walk is over may he find rest eternal and may we all continue to be inspired by his courage to choose peace, continue his cries of justice for all people and to ensure that all each and every person can live with dignity.  May his memory live on not just in minds but also in our words and actions until that final peak is reached and equality is no longer a goal but a reality.
