The Long Walk 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

I am sure the walk isn't over but the struggle and pain are.
Words are small today. Love is impressive.
... gone too soon. 

“The greatest glory in living
lies not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.”

Nelson Mandela
