Freedom and Forever. Click! – South Africa

So many pictures. So much beauty. Let’s travel the trails of the fabulous South Africa, a country not without it’s scars. Here people cling to hertitage and homelands with a devoted passion. Why? Because it’s absolutely worth it! there are so many stories behind the camera lens.

Today, as a tribute to Nelson Mandela, I write of Freedom.  No, this is not and never will be a political blogsite.

I pay tribute to a man; who says himself, that he was born free, campaigned for freedom, was imprisioned because he wanted freedom and equality, and was then set free to rule his country.  Nelson Mandela.

    I watched the video and learned once again about this courageous man who did so much for his country. As his life winds down he remains in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. This is such a fascinating post for the letter “F”!

    His story is so inspiring… It must have been really frightening to face all of those obstacles… He will never be forgotten!

    Fantastic job, thanks for linking.”
