Shanghai’s concentration of toxic particulate matter (PM) reached 602.5 micrograms per cubic meter on Friday afternoon – the highest level since records began last December, and more than 24 times higher than the World Health Organization’s guideline of 25 micrograms. The situation was so bad that Shanghai authorities ordered schoolchildren indoors and halted all construction after the financial district was engulfed by a sickening yellow haze.

Thank You Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and Rest in Peace

Comments Off on Thank You Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and Rest in Peace

When Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was inaugurated in Pretoria on 10 May, 1994, I distinctly remember wondering what would happen to South Africa , where I spent my childhood. By then, I was finishing high school in Virginia, where my peers often asked me about apartheid and the systemic racism that marred our otherwise beautiful nation. When he became president, Madiba had every reason to exact a terrible revenge on behalf of his people. And no doubt those who had suffered so gravely at the hands of white supremacists wanted him to take a retaliatory stance. Instead, he led a deeply scarred nation through reconciliation, showing a generosity of spirit never before seen in an African leader. All of this after spending nearly three decades behind bars. Upon hearing the news of his passing, my first reaction was relief. He had a long life, 95 years full of strife, and the current leadership has disgraced his extraordinary sacrifices with corruption and petty politics. But mostly I feel an incredible sadness, as though my own grandfather has died. Madiba made me want to be a better person; it is he who taught me to be kind and tolerant, to treat all people equally, to live a free life with respect for the freedom of all other living beings. I’m not even half the person he was. But I can try. We can all try. We owe him that. + Nelson Mandela Foundation + South African Government Homepage Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Inhabitat Mandela tribute , Madiba , Mandela father of south africa , Nelson Mandela , nelson mandela foundation , Nelson Mandela has died , nelson mandela information , RIP Nelson Mandela , South Africa Apartheid , South Africa reconciliation , south african childhood , south african government website , Tafline Laylin Nelson Mandela tribute , Tata Mandela
