This quote from Nelson Mandela was taped to the wall in a hospital in Gulu, Uganda:
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter. I have made missteps along the way – but I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.”
Pastor Simon Peter is a great admirer of Nelson Mandela and is inspired by his life and work. If only each African nation could have a leader like him, who served the people, had the best interests of the country in his heart, and who did not cling to power.
