Listen, I am soooo saddened to hear about the passing of Africa’s FATHER – Black men and Black women’s HUMAN HERO ……….. one of my childhood…… pre – teen…..teen and adult hero……The one and ONLY – Mr. Nelson Mandela – I just heard that he passed 30 minutes ago and I am REALLY bothered…. I have been praying for him and screamed when I found out – My son Jared came running and asked me what was the matter –
I said baby Nelson Mandela passed – he said what mom…for real… I said do you know who he is / who he was? He said yes mom, you told me about him several times like you do about other black leaders….. That made me feel so good that he not only remembered who this great man was ….but Jared also KNEW that with this man dying that it meant something for black men and women around the world…….. My heart really is hurt…. It makes me also think of my father because it indeed was the late Mr. Norris Coleman who taught me ALL about important political leaders…….
