Prayers for Nelson Mandela

THE year I was born, Mr Nelson Mandela was imprisoned and when I turned 26 years he was freed from his solitary confinement; 26 years of imprisonment including years of solitary confinement did not shake Mr Mandela’s resolve.

He is now nearing 95 years and is hospitalised for over a month. I want to salute Mr Nelson Mandela for being the beacon of hope for the oppressed people around the world.

The world is so much richer and a greater place to live, thanks to people like him. My prayers for him. And may the oppressors acknowledge the strength of a man who has given hope to the world.

I feel proud to be part of the human race where Mr Nelson Mandela is also a part of it. I have hope in the ultimate triumph of humanity.
