Dr. DeMartini Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Todd and I did a tour of  Robben Island  where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

It was one of the most heart-wrenching places and tours I have ever had. At that time the staff working there had been imprisoned there.  Our female tour guide was imprisoned  for 10+ years. There wasn't a dry eye in the place after that tour...

This is my favorite Mandela quote

“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
