So long Madiba…


The last straw that connected those of us who were born before Dec 5, 2013, with our bitter history of racism, indiscrimination, inequality and above all slavery, is gone.

Madiba’s end was coming for some time. He had been ill for a while. When the news spread that he passed away peacefully in his sleep, it was a moment that millions and millions around the globe were waiting to embrace with a tear.  So, we are doing it now.

I very vividly remember your release from the prison and your subsequent victory in the SA elections a few years later.  Your life is truly am embodiment of the times we live(d) in.

So long Madiba! You were one of a kind…


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
