Nelson Mandela: Our “Madiba” Tribute With Love ***messymandella***

Nelson Mandela lived behind bars 27 years, to break boundaries for us!

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela

 

Yes, of course we are sad. But it’s like when your grandfather passes away, we celebrate their life work and we smile and we dance. We do this for him even more,” Celina Makoba told me as she clapped her hands to the traditional music that has transformed the street in front of Mandela’s home into a festival.”-people of Johannesburg

“Do not judge me by my successes. Judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” Nelson Mandela

You will be lied to and trashed behind your back by close minded individuals that can’t envision an eclectic and unified world.

They will  resent you for competing and striving for more in this life. You will encounter smiles behind a closed door and insults when you are not around.

I speak from experience and want you to realize that if you are being dragged, look at who is doing the dragging.

You must not let jealousy and back biting  omit your personal truth, and freedom and rights to be happy. Express your opinions and dont give up your fight for equality.

Look at the people that are causing defamation and just being pure two faced and never let them become victorious.

You look at their close minded lives and watch how scared they are of embracing truth, expression and art. Even with betrayal, you must stand strong and still YOU must rise.

Still I Rise-Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
