As much of the world mourns the passing of peacemaker, a friend sent me this quote of Nelson Mandela
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” Nelson Mandela
I then found the tribute of a South African pastor who explains his reasons for honoring the man who, after spending 27 years in prison for sabotage and attempting to overthrow the government, led a divided nation from the brink of civil war.
