These lyrics so beautifully outline what’s happening in South Africa and across the globe right now with our beloved Mandela’s ailing health and inevitable transition into peace.
South Africans need to unite and not see this as the end of anything, but the beginning of a very new era, an era where we can all hold up the legacy Madiba so long and diligently worked to uphold. A legacy of respect, equality, humanity, tolerance, empowerment, compassion and kindness.
The legacy of love.
“People running scared amongst these changed times
Recession, depression, unemployed and blind
Everybody needs a mental healing, yes they do
Now’s the time to raise your voice and lift your hand
Show your love to every woman, every man
Nobody believes things will get better
But I do”
