Some call him a terrorist, a communist, and even a sell-out. To many more, he is a revolutionary, a visionary, and a hero. And his day came to an end this week.
Tomorrow, world leaders, dignitaries, family and friends memorialize him who who showed the world that forgiveness and reconciliation is not as impossible as it seems; him who proved that love does conquer after all.
Sleep well, Madiba. Thank you.
It’s seems so easy to say
They say it’s the answer
Love and all will be better
Love makes all well again
They’re kind to each other
So maybe love is the answer
and maybe Christmas should be everyday
I was cleaning out my emails the other day and I happened by this email from my youngest daughter from when she was eight years old and we finally let her have a GMAIL account. She sent me the following from her newly created email account.
FROM THE CLONE:
Thank you for gmail, thank you thank you thank you!
I ever love you so!
I love you, I love you!
And you helped me type when I couldn’t spell,
and you’ll always know,
that I love you so,
your the best mother I’ll ever know.
To which I answered:
FROM HER MOMMA:
You’re welcome, your welcome!
I do it cause I love you
I do it cause you smile
I do it cause it makes you happy.
I hope I will always give you happiness
I hope you will always appreciate.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
I’ll always love you no matter what you do.
