“It is in your hands now” if Justice is to wend its way to fruition! Eddy, Lobl, Mandela and Oprah


“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead” – Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s  birthday on 18 July, 2009 via unanimous decision of the UN General Assembly.

It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that “it is in your hands now”.

It is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy. It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for the better.

So, dear young friend, cultivate joy, hope, faith. Life lies before you glorious; banish the shadow, seize the substance thereof, and God, good, is with you alway. – Mary Baker Eddy
