Nelson Mandela Lliberty Bell

Madiba dedicated his life to conquering Apartheid and succeeding, leading one of the most deeply divided nations on earth into a thriving democracy. His achievements are without measure and he truly is larger than life. Madiba continues to be a true inspiration for what it really means to be a human being, his grace, his peaceful nature, his saintly stature puts him up there with the best of the best.

Let us exemplify his dream and live our lives in his spirit of love and respect for all people. Now is the time to oppose racism, discrimination against women, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, put down the guns, accept all religions and beliefs.

It is a matter of justice and love. Mandela helped us unify people. Every human being is precious. We all must be allowed to love each other with honor. If there is one person that has the power to bind people it's the spirit of Madiba.

Nelson Mandela brought South Africa from the dark, conservative, days of Apartheid to one of the most significant democracies in the world.

So we say this to you Madiba: You will live forever. Mr Mandela we will miss you, and just to let you know your dreams have come alive in the heart of projects like West Africa Cooks, your spirit of unity, diversity and love will always be with us forever.

You would be proud, we hold your name up high. You have changed our lives and community, that we are forever indebted to you. You have lead us by our hopes and not our fears. We love you Tata, rest is peace.
