“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.” ― Nelson Mandela (Source: Nancy Lynn McKinley via Ute Lark)
It is now up to those who are still among the living in this realm to remain on the trail that Nelson Mandela so brilliantly blazed, and keep walking. He has achieved great things and deserves his rest. May he never stop enjoying the glorious vista that surrounds him.
