Hearts for our Hero

June 24, 2013

I do some volunteer reading for a couple of kids who battle with letters, words and how they merge to make sense.

Two weeks ago we decided to do messages for Madiba who had been admitted to hospital at the time. It’s sad news that he’s still in hospital today and that government reports now say his health status has deteriorated to “critical”.

What the kids wrote and drew reminds me just what a giant of a man Nelson Mandela truly is. It’s also a reminder of how precious and beautiful it is to call yourself a South African when we choose to live engaged lives and when we strive to get closer to the ideals Mandela asked us to hold closest to our hearts. It’s what we must never forget, especially now when things are uncertain and when days seems dark.

These are pictures from Lerato, Nephatile and Kiana.

We love you Madiba!
