In memorial of Nelson Mandela

It is perhaps fitting that the Official Memorial for Former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela falls on December 10th, Human Rights Day.

Whilst this individual flame of peace, reconciliation and human rights has been extinguished, may the fire of passion for his legacy be honoured, not only in the actions of world leaders who must strive to follow through on their lofty speeches; but in the actions of the grassroots who must continue to advocate and raise awareness of the oppressed and hold their representatives to account.
