Happy Freedom Day to South Africa!

Hello Lovely People….

Happy Freedom Day to South Africans world-wide!

April 27th is South Africa’s Freedom Day. It is a significant day in that it celebrates freedom and commemorates the first post-apartheid elections held on that day, 27 April 1994. They were the first national elections in South Africa in which elections did not depend upon race.

Nelson Mandela

As I join in South Africans world-wide and my maternal side of the family that is South African in celebrating this day, I think about the words of Nelson Mandela.

(quotes from Marianne Williamson):

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
