It is with abundant hope in humanity that we end off Mandela Day 2016. The Purity of the hearts of the people that wants to make a difference is what I will remember. Gone are the days when identifying the problems is as far as we will go! I salute the brave adventurous people of South Africa that proudly go to where others fear to tread. People joining the playing field of life rather than the multitude of referees judging wrong from right.
A Momentum has started where the loving hearts of individuals and families will bring the much needed change and spread hope. A momentum has started where a people with pure hearts are changing communities, towns, cities, nations…the world!!
Let us write the history books for our children so they can also believe that one person loving another in need can change the world. That unconditional love is the secret ingredient that will add flavour back in everyday life.
Here is a quick test to see who will be part of the problem and who will be part of the solution.
1. I Love I
2. I love me
3. I love you for me
4. I love you
