19 Years Ago: Nelson Mandela’s Inauguration

Nelson_Mandela-2008_(edit)

Exactly four years and two months after his release from Victor Verster prison, May 10th 1994, Nelson Mandela was sworn in as the first black African democratically elected President of South Africa.  This was the beginning of a “Government of National Unity.”

This eventful day was attended by over 4,000 guests and was witnessed across the world by at least a billion viewers.

These were trying times.  I never thought I would live to see the demolition of the Berlin Wall or the first Black president of the USA or even the release of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.   So this one is for the non-believers; “Faith DOES move mountains.”

Mr. Mandela, now 94, stay strong!!
