Nelson Mandela: Reflections and Song from Humanitarian Glen Marais @GMarais88

Humanitarian, Musician and Canadian Roots Radio jingle creator Glen Marais wrote this song to celebrate Nelson’s 90th birthday. It was chosen by The Mandela Children’s Foundation to be the official song for his 90th birthday.

Here are Glen’s reflections:

I am filled with thoughts of my parents and South Africa tonight and the many years of struggle that they and so many South Africans faced in the quest for freedom and equality. My parents came to Canada to find a better life for us, because of the system of Apartheid that enforced racial separation and led with fear and tyranny.

I remember how overcome they were when he was elected President. It was such a big moment for them and for the whole world, to see a black man running a country that essentially reduced their status to be less than human. It was a wonderful renaissance and change and so much hope came with it. His call for a rainbow nation was supreme and brilliant in the wake of the hatred and oppression that he had faced for 27 years. This was Mandela’s brilliance; turning enemies into allies and foes into friends. Leading with love and inspiring the world to follow in this dream and free ourselves from the shackles of ignorance and narrow mindedness.

To me Mandela stood as tall and proud as Martin Luther King in his quest for civil rights and equality for blacks in America. The challenge was equally intimidating and as dangerous and required enormous courage, belief and faith in the right of freedom for all. Mandela was a warrior spirit who never wavered in his beliefs, but tempered and refined his vision with the wisdom acquired from 27 years of captivity into a dream and hope for a better world that completely captivated and inspired the entire world. His love of children and belief in them as our hope for the future is a fantastic legacy to carry forward and continue the work that he started. Prayers for South Africa and Mandela’s family tonight.
