Sleeping In Perfect Peace #RIPMandela

I was reading +Ato Ulzen-Appiah's blog post (Driving through Accra, I Made Ghana Better Today, on International Volunteer Day) and listening to this music (Lengoma by DJ Sbu featuring Zahara) with its cool and soul touching percussion instruments sounds, then I decided to check Twitter for what's going on. My timeline says all (#RIPMandela):

Immediately my heart started beating at a faster pace to the tune on the music. I felt it deep down me that the world has lost a very important soul.

I really learnt and am learning from the life of this HERO. This man proves to, not only me, but the whole world, that nothing is impossible. He moved from "Z"ERO to "H"ERO. Even though I was a kid who knows neither red nor black not born before he was released from prison.

This really doesn't call for mourning, is a time of happiness but we just can't control this feelings.

When the late Nelson Mandela was asked: How do you want the world to remember you? He simply gave this answer, which still sounds in my mind after listening to it yesterday in the early hours of death on the BBC.
46664 is a number associated with Nelson Mandela. Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island in 1964, and was the 466th prisoner to arrive that year. The prison administration's scheme of numbering prisoners was to follow the sequence number of the prisoner (466 in his case), with the last two digits of the year (64). The number is also associated with a series of AIDS charity concerts played in honour of Nelson Mandela by South African musicians in the 2000s. - Source: Wikimedia Commons

The world can't forget about you. I will say is "future impossible".
