While I sadly had to leaveSouth Africa and am no longer sharing in your daily adventures I am still following all your activities and so excited for all you are getting to do!! Please keep posting everything!!
I am reading Nelson Mandella Conversations with Myself , and remembering all that we did the first two weeks. It especially has me thinking of our visit with Ahmed Kathrada and what a magical day that was. The book is a compilation of Mandela’s speeches, writings, interviews, journal entries etc. and there are many conversations with Kathrada in it. They remind me so much of the gentle, wise but committed man that we met, and as always I have been trying to sum it up as I work on my final project. Today it came to me …..the saying that” life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to what has happened to you.” To react as both these men did is truly heroic.
