Despite recent media reports, I’ve never said anything to dishonor or trivialize the life or transition of one of the most inspiring leaders— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 9, 2013
I’d like to address the false stories and noise that have been engineered by the media.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 9, 2013
At a young age my mother taught me the importance of his work. Mandela sacrificed his life for the betterment of mankind.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 9, 2013
Thank you, Mandela, for your life’s work and may it serve as a guiding light to illuminate our future.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) December 9, 2013
We are not so different.
I love this, we are all just occupying different forms
Because the first kids are just so tastefully fashionable.
Nelson Mandela’s Long Road to Freedom
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended” - Nelson Mandela
Revolutionary, anti-apartheid leader, peacemaker and world icon Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg, South Africa, just before 9 p.m. local time on December 5, 2013. He was 95 years.
Mandela, who spent 27 years in jail for fighting the racist white rule of apartheid, gave his life to see the liberation of his people. His courage and resolution will forever serve as a great example of human dignity.
The world honors your memory. May you rest in peace, Madiba.
It’s pouring rain in #SouthAfrica today. The #Ancestors & #TataMadiba is def in spirit. Great sadness but also a celebration. #MandelaMemorial (at Remembering Mandela)
