Breakfast with Mandela

30 Jun

One of the highlights of my life  was being in South Africa when apartheid breathed its final breath and Nelson Mandela was elected president. I didn’t think it could get any better until I had an opportunity to have breakfast with President Mandela at Blair House in Washington, DC, a few months later.

I keep this autographed place card to remind me how blessed I’ve been.  Keeping Madiba, his family and all of those fighting for freedom in my prayers.
