What An AWESOME View –


ANGLESThis is simply breath-taking……… I mean to see THIS KIND OF PROTECTION surrounding the earth!!!…….. In my spiritual eyes – and scriptural speaking – THIS IS WHAT I SEE…….

Can you imagine anything trying BUST THROUGH this type of protection?? No, I cannot either…MEANING, if and when things get through that may seem harmful to us here on earth, it is indeed because God….Himself has allowed it.

( for His reasons and for His purpose ) Again, what  a breath taking photo – I am really feeling the experience of it all

Nelson Mandela Facts –


Nelson-Mandela

 

A true example of a living legend, Nelson Mandela celebrates his 94th birthday on July 18, 2012. Mandela has led a lifelong struggle for freedom and equality in South Africa, best known for his landmark role in helping end the nation’s apartheid regime in the 1990s. Through his leadership and courage, Mandela has also inspired people worldwide to fight for change, even in the face of tremendous adversity.

Early Years
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, in Qunu, Transkei, South Africa. He was an active student as a young man, leading strikes at Fort Hare University before starting the Youth League of the African National Congress with other student activists in 1944. Mandela became active in the campaign to end apartheid in South Africa, advocating civil disobedience to draw attention to this unjust system of state-sponsored segregation and discrimination.

Imprisonment
In March 1960, the Sharpeville Massacre brought the struggle against apartheid into the international spotlight. A massive number of black protestors led a demonstration at a police station in the township of Sharpeville. Police reacted violently against the protest, killing over 69 people. The massacre became a flashpoint for the fight against apartheid. Mandela helped organize a general strike and formed a paramilitary wing of the ANC called Umkhonte we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation). The South African government cracked down on Mandela and other activists, determined to shut down these efforts. Mandela was sentenced to life in prison in 1964 for his political activities. He would spend 27 years in prison on South Africa’s Robben Island and later at Pollsmoor Prison.

PRAYING FOR THIS AWESOME AND NOBLE MAN –
