Mandela's influence in my Life (Article) - 12/12/2013 9:54:06 PM
Wow! What a statement of support for freedom, for equality, and for the right to follow your dreams. You are an inspiration to me, Barbara, and I applaud your candor and your perseverance. We in the U.S. know very little of the life and times in SA. Thanks for opening the door a little and for giving us a glimpse of what could happen here in the next 20 or 30 years if present inequality trends continue.

I want to thank you for this candid view of South Africa today. I had thought, unlike neighboring states that have fallen into chaos and corruption, that South Africa was more stable and a better place to live. Let's hope that quality will bring about fairness as well as the best will be able to rise to the top like Mandela did.
There are only two things that I would caution you about. I believe it's because you're using the voices like I do that you called it the "anti-apartment government" and that your "heart sores" for Mandela. I certainly hope that the words "apartheid" and "soars" are read by the readers instead. ;-)

I can only imagine how this experience has influenced your life. Thanks for sharing. And I agree with your bio philosophy about being afraid of what we can do, not what we can't. I've always had a feeling that this might be the real truth...
