Every year on Nelson Mandela’s birthday,
the people aim to highlight his 67 years
of selfless dedication to fighting for peace,
reconciliation, and democracy by doing good for others.

It’s one day of the year
where people are asked
to spend 67 minutes of their time
performing selfless acts for the less fortunate…

Joy and Sorrow

blossom“Your joy is your sorrow unmasked. And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears. And how else can it be?
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
― Kahlil GibranThe Prophet

Made in His likeness

martin luther king jr 2

Why go back to darkness,
when light is plain to see.
Amid all the conflict,
love sets disunity free!

Kindness is the antidote
to a world full of strife.
Release the chains of hostility,
and praise the great design!

All Earthlings are made in His likeness,
with the power to create.
Let’s develop unbreakable connections,
so that love will remain!
