This year the essence of Nelson Mandela month is more significant than ever before as the world fights the spread of an unseen enemy – the coronavirus.
As Mandela month draws to a close, we look at Dr Garth Benneyworth’s typed copy of Nelson Mandela’s original handwritten journal and notes retrieved from the National Archives of South Africa as Nelson Mandela notes:
“The time comes in the life of a nation when there remain only two choices – submit or fight.”
This bold statement speaks directly to the current crisis that we live in. We cannot submit as our nation will perish. We can and must fight this pandemic by committing to acting responsibly in our lives and for the lives of those around us.
As we battle this pandemic let us assist those in need through donations of food items, clothing, or other essentials while adhering to the health and safety protocols.
Let’s take care and stay safe.
