Review: Life And Times of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (MADIBA) By Amb Tunde AdetunjiPress Releases, Uncategorized Tuesday, December 10th, 2013
The entire management and staff of the Africa Heritage Foundation, the Africa Heritage Center, and the Africa Heritage Diaspora Radio and Television, in collaboration with the African churches in Atlanta, Georgia, friends, well-wishers, and partners join the rest of the world to mourn the passing away of former President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. We celebrate his life and times as a true leader, a healer, a father, a legend, an Anti-apartheid hero, and an icon of inspiration to humanity. He has fought the fight and won the battle, change the world and gallantly bowed out to say good bye!!!
He is truly an embodiment of Love, unity, peace, and the greatest among the great. What made Mandela great is what made him human, a feat that the world should emulate.
Nelson Mandela has vividly demonstrated that Faith is a lifestyle, not a formula. He has dedicated his life to total struggle, fought against white domination, fought against black domination and cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. Nelson Mandela has proved beyond reasonable doubt, through his love for art, culture, and creativity, that “without heritage, there is no horizon”.
His total support and endorsement of Celebrate Africa Journey Through the Ages exhibition mounted in his honor during the all Africa games of 1999 at the Tsutsumani Village and Johannesburg stadium on behalf of Africa by the Africa Heritage Foundation has today became the pivot of unity that bind the indigenous the intimate, distance Africans and the global community together through cultural diversity.
In his word “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do”.
The two celebrations of life memorial services planned in his honor are happening on Thursday, December 12, 2013. The morning service will take place at the Georgia State Capitol, Room 450 and The Rotunda, at 10:00 A.M. This will be a gathering of local Georgia officials, Lawmakers, Members of the diplomatic community, dignitaries, partners, friends, and supporters.
The second celebration service will be held in collaboration with many African churches in Atlanta, Georgia at Family Praise Chapel – 3810 Waldrop Rd, Decatur, GA 30034. This service begins at 7:00 P.M.
This is our humble appreciation of the encouragement and legacy he passed on to us, to rise to the zenith of our callings. In remembering Nelson Mandela as a great teacher through his doctrine, the greatest glory in living does not lie in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. We should not be judged by our successes but by how many times we fall and get up back again – the courage was not expressed by the absence of fear but by the triumphing over it.
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is one of the most iconic figures of the 20th century who has left his foot print on the sand of times. Death is something inevitable, and when a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and the world, he can rest in peace. The entire world believes today that MADIBA has made the effort and that is why he now sleeps in the bosom of the lord.
“Forever the world will miss him”. Adieu Madiba, till we meet in eternity.Ambassador Tunde Adetunji, CEO/Africa Heritage Foundation Chair, Africa Heritage Center SPSU Atlanta, Georgia USA Atlanta, Georgia – December 10, 2013
