Today, South Africa celebrates Freedom Day.
Historically, it commemorates the very first elections held in the country after Apartheid on that day, in 1994.
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chain, but to live in a way that respects and enhances freedom of others”. (Nelson) Rolihlahla Mandela (1918 – 2013).
Such celebration brings a fair share of emotions to me, not just because I am of African descent, but also because I had the privilege to visit his beautiful nation earlier this year. (Check out My Trip to South Africa).
I wish a mysterious rocket would take me to South Africa right now to rejoice with the people as they celebrate #FreedomDay!
