Today just keeps getting flatter and flatter for me. My woes have just been compounded by the fact that Nelson Mandela, a global icon, has just passed on, and I’m surrounded by people who don’t know who that is. I forgive their ignorance, even though it’s unforgivable. I wish I was somewhere in Africa right now with anyone I know and love. I hope things will be okay for you all and I pray Madiba rests in peace.
