Madiba: A Man for Humanity

Today in Soweto, the world is paying tribute to Madiba – Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

Today is also World Human Rights Day, and the 20th Anniversary of the Vienna Declaration.

UN  HUMAN RIGHTS DAY

If ever there was a person that represented the highest qualities of humanity that are reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it is he.

Nelson Mandela

Today, we reflect on greatness. We consider the values held dear by Madiba, and hope that the world will not only celebrate his life but reflect upon their own, and will think about the rights of all people to live in freedom with equality and justice.

Whilst we contemplate this, let’s also consider how we can ensure that the UN Declaration of Human Rights is known, understood and acted upon by all people – and where better to start by making sure all of our children know their rights and those of their families and friends.

As Madiba said, education is the most powerful of weapons. Let’s use it wisely.
