A Soul Ascending

When a man like Nelson Mandela leaves our world it’s as if the whole planet sighs. We are caught up in the wake of his soul ascending in a bright moment of profound silence and reflection.

His legend and his legacy will be the chatter across the airwaves. We can hope for a breath we are treated to images of goodness and decency, of kindness and compassion, of pettiness trumped by a grand vision of what it is to be human and forgive.

We all have the spirit of Nelson Mandela within us. His body is spent but the spirit is still here to teach us that we can all rise above the conditions of our lives.

To Nelson Mandela, I offer you my silence.

  • When I learned of Nelson Mandela’s passing, I knew one of our “giants” had left this earth.

    I was saddened by our loss, but knew his spirit would shine out through eternity to brighten our way with the love he was.

    Thank you Nick.

  • He did so many amazing things. He brought hope and inspiration. The world thanks you Nelson Mandela!

    I will give a moment of silence!
