*Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika (Xhosa)

“Nelson Mandela’s birthday is today, and the call is out for people everywhere to celebrate his birthday by acting on the idea that each person has the power to change the world.”

madiba quote

So today in honor of Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, people around the world are giving 67 minutes of their time to help another person. It’s a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good.

In the streets of the city
his light radiates,
in the hearts of our nation
his truth permeates.

Father of Africa,
your legacy survived,
we lift each other’s burdens,
so love can arise!

*The meaning of Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika (Xhosa) is “God (Lord) Bless Africa”
