“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.” ~ Nelson Mandela
With xenophobia crushed and our government ministers, all free of wrongdoing, doing their utmost best to lift the lives of others (not their own), I wished all a happy freedom day on 27 April 2015.

Wonderful photo Andrew. The road to democracy was a long and difficult one.
We all need to continue to work to eradicate poverty, racial inequalities and socio-economic disparities. Freedom Day represents something very precious, the necessary condition for us to achieve the vital and fundamental goal of a better life for all. We must strive to ensure that all people enjoy these freedoms not merely as theoretical rights but as an integral part of each person’s daily life experience.
Cheers Alain. Thanks for connecting!
