Long Walk to Freedom

Let Freedom Reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement. | Nelson Mandela |

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. | Nelson Mandela |

Last Sunday, Shane and I went to Robben Island. It was a really amazing opportunity for us to be reminded of the intensity of South Africa’s past, but also the power of human triumph in the fight for Freedom! Nelson Mandela spent 18 years in the prison cell you see in this picture. yet after all that time he did not emerge bitter. South Africa has a history of strong people resisting oppression and fighting for freedom.

Because of the journey of Nelson Mandela and the many other political prisoners of Robben Island, today we can be inspired to never give up the fight for freedom for every individual!

Watch the video to get a little taste of the windy Robben Island:
