Nelson Mandela’s inaugural address

I don’t claim to know, understand or agree with all Mr. Mandela has done. But one thing is for sure, this man’s work is very, very, inspiring. And this is one of those leaders we all wish had stayed in power just a little longer.

“Let there be justice for all.
Let there be peace for all.
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfil themselves.
Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another and suffer the indignity of being the skunk of the world.
Let freedom reign.
The sun shall never set on so glorious a human achievement!”
