“67 Minutes”: FAB MUSIC â–º JR’s “18 July Mandela Day” [AUDIO]



Happy Sunday Great Ones!

.

Count-down begins for the July 18th!

What about it, you ask, especially if you are nowhere close to Southern Africa. Well, recall in 2009, the United Nations declared July 18th “Nelson Mandela International Day” (Tata Mandela’s birthday) to mark the South African anti-apartheid leader & legendary icon’s contribution to peace. Tata Mandela spent 67 years making the world a better place.

Tata Mandela turns 93 on July 18th, and the call has gone out for people everywhere to celebrate his birthday –  Mandela Day – by acting on the idea that each person has the power to change the world.

“Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.”Nelson Mandela.

Many South Africans and indeed most Africans from all walks of life will respond to the call to mark the day by spending 67 minutes to change the world around them. For 67 minutes, we are challenged to reach out to those less fortunate and try to do something to improve their lives.

What will you be doing with your 67 minutes?!
