Rebel with a Cause, (Shivanie.me) is a description I often call myself and am known as among my family and close friends. Today the world’s people said farewell to the Honorable LEGEND, Nelson Mandela. As the Former President of South Africa Mandela was also humanitarian, politician, lawyer, and most importantly a Freedom Fighter. ‘Madiba’ has gone to be with the Angels but the world and generations now and forever will remember his LEGACY along with the sacrifices and contributions he endured for FREEDOM.
For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. ~ Mandela
The inspiration emerged today when I heard this bittersweet news. Remembering his life and the Quiet Dignity he had while also being a Rebel with a Cause. We have to learn from his wisdom and recognize that in order to ultimately be free we have to face the truths that come from deep within. We all have our life’s purpose, passions and visions to change something in our lives or even in the world that could not only help in our own journey but also have the power to INSPIRE others. STRONG LEADERS NEVER GIVE UP and deep within my heart I know that My Freedom Story as it is still being unraveled is part of My Divine Legacy to motivate others.
Listening to Mandela’s story I now consider myself a Modern Day Freedom Fighter of my generation.
With the topic of freedom I dedicate this to the many change makers of my era still fighting for freedom.
