Nelson Mandela…The Servant Father of South Africa In His Own Words


 

http://cdn1.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/images/nelson-mandela/quotes/118556.png

The world took a pause as we learned of the death of  Nelson Mandela. We can say a great deal about him but I found it most fitting to let his own words speak volumes to what he has said in his 95 years of living. Take your rightfully earned place of rest…as we honor and salute you Mr.

“One day I will be the first black president of South Africa.” 1952

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Rivonia trial on 20 April 1964

“Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one-armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.” Letter to Winnie Mandela, 1 February 1975

Friends, comrades and fellow South Africans, I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands.” Speaking on his release from Robben Island from the balcony of Cape Town city hall on Sunday 11 February 1990

“Since my release, I have become more convinced than ever that the real makers of history are the ordinary men and women of our country; their participation in every decision about the future is the only guarantee of true democracy and freedom.” The Struggle is My Life 1990

“Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.” Interview for the documentary Mandela, 1994  http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/dec/06/nelson-mandela-life-quotes

“This is a war. It has killed more people than has been the case in all previous wars and in all previous natural disasters. We must not continue to be debating, to be arguing, when people are dying.” — On HIV/Aids.

“Nobody knows when they are going to die. Even though I am an old man I do not dwell on the possibility of death. Death comes when it is ready.” — Three days before it was announced that he had been diagnosed with microscopic prostate cancer in 2001. http://www.sowetanlive.co.za/news/mandela/2013/12/06/one-hundred-quotes-from-nelson-mandela

Rest on Servant Father of the Nation!

YoTrip Chooses to LIVE LIFE 4/16/13


Great day in the morning folks! Decide right now to LIVE your life in the spirit of peace. #GDMF374

Chooses To LIVE LIFE

In the mist of all this darkness, disaster, and doom
I choose to LIVE and get beyond the gloom
It is so easy to soak it up and be consumed with it all
Now is the time to LIVE and not fold and fall
We must now take an action and that is to LIVE
Make it your business to go on and give
Never will we get this time to LIVE over again
So just choose life and go right on and win
We can make a thousand excuses and stay stuck in place
Or we can move now and start running the LIFE race
So LIVE life for the ones who gave LIFE without a reason
Take if from me now is the LIVE LIFE season.
Yo Trip ~~4/16/13

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for March 10, 2011-“The Invisible” (Vol.3,Iss.2)


It's a Small World, Disneyland, 1979

The segment on the issue of Homelessness in Central Florida ran again last night on 60 Minutes. I thought I would re-run my posts on the situation. This is part one…
-YoTrip
The “Invisible” in our Communities
 

Last Sunday, the long-running news show 60 Minutes featured a segment on the homeless children in the Central Florida area. The show focused on the plight of children who, along with their families are homeless as a result of the residual effects of the economic downturn. The correspondent Scott Pelley saw a projection by the Congressional Budget Office that the poverty rate among children was moving towards 25 percent, and wanted to look at how homeless children and their families were coping. The show placed some emphasis on the notion all this was going on right in the backyard of the land of Disney.  Can you can hear “It’s a Small World After All” playing in your mind right now?

The land of Disney is full of fantasy, fun and flocking for the hundreds of thousands who come from all over the world to experience the magic of Mickey Mouse. Yet the reality is all of what Disney projects pales in the face of what is the plight of the homeless in Central Florida. The 60 Minutes show chronicled the lives of two children and their families who live a world away from Disney in Seminole County (Casselberry). One family lives in an extended stay type hotel and the other family lives with some neighbors. The current living condition of these families shows the outside world that even in the land of Mickey Mouse you can be in a poverty-stricken state of homelessness.

Since the show aired there has been an outcry from people who live in the Central Florida and were unaware that there is a large population of families who are in varying states of homelessness. For the people who viewed this show and were upset to learn that children were hungry and homeless, it was an awakening of a sad state of affairs in this country. Countless numbers of people were applauded to learn that seemingly regular or normal looking children were reduced to doing homework in a car and cleaning up in the restrooms of fast-food restaurants. The descriptive activity of the hungry and homeless is a sad testament to what has plagued many in our society.

In most cities big and small in this country you can find individuals or groups of people who exist and survive without the comforts of a warm cozy home, meals of their choosing, a closet full of clothes or a vehicle to get them from to and fro. These individuals and groups of people are not a part of the mainstream of society and are “invisible” to people who do not encounter them each and every day. The “Invisible” are men and women, boys and girls, young and old, brown, white, yellow and black in color. The “Invisible” are typically former in their profession doctors, lawyers, soldiers, accountants, engineers, teachers, and such. For the most part, “Invisible” are people who have for whatever reason have lost their way of regular everyday living and are now the product of their predicament: THEY ARE HOMELESS!

The bigger question is what the community can do to help the hopeless find hope, heal the pains of hunger in the children and their families, and harness healthy ways to get people back on track. As easy as it was for some people to spiral out of control, it is going to be a challenge to move people back to a place of wholeness. It is critical that people not look down on those who have come to a place of homelessness and hunger, in these economic times it can so easily be any one of us.
To be continued…

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for January 13,2011-Triumph in the Wake of Tragedy (Vol.1, Iss.2)


Mount Triumph 7240+ feet, 2207+ meters

Image via Wikipedia

“Although there may be tragedy in your life, there’s always a possibility to triumph. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from. The ability to triumph begins with you. Always”
  
 Triumph In The Wake of Tragedy

Oprah Winfrey spoke the truth when she was quoted on how life will present you with tragedy but triumph is always possible. Everyday someone has to look tragedy in the face and wonder why me? How did this happen? Why is this happening? What did I do to deserve this? Will I ever get over this? It is when we find ourselves having to answer these questions and countless others that the decision is made on how to move from the tragedy and on to the triumph.

 The innate human side of us is not readily equipped to find our way from tragedy to triumph. The unexpected appearance of tragedy on our doorsteps requires us to address people, places or possessions we were not prepared to deal with in that moment. Tragedy can make us, shake us, and take us out of our routine and into a downward spiral. At some point every person must see the tragedy not as a way of life but as a stop on the pathway of their journey.

How do you find triumph in the wake of tragedy? When you decide that the present state of tragedy is something you can rise above, get over, and move pass to triumph. The activity of rising above, getting over and moving pass tragedy is different for everyone. Triumph is attainable when you are ready to see yourself overcoming the tragic state you are in and finding yourself in a triumphant place.

The heartbreak and heartache of tragedy comes (the devastating blow of an earthquake that shakes the nation of Haiti, the terror and trauma of the Tucson shootings and the list goes on) yet it is up to every person to find the strength, hope and courage to see the triumph. ~~YoTrip

YoTrip-Words and Thoughts “An Ode to 2010”


an old post card

Greetings,
I was waiting in between flights today and this came to me so I thought I would share.
  
An Ode To 2010
  
A year of years was this 2010
I mean it was interesting down to the end
The year started with a boom and a earthqake
The poor people of Haiti it was more than they could take
The rains and waters were not kind in Tennessee
Mud slides and floods beyond what they eyes could see
March brought on Maddness of a different kind
There were days it was so cold in Florida the sun did not shine
A group shouting and rant about how goverment should be
Saw the world a bit different and called themeselves Tea
The champion of golf saw his personal life and game crumble
He was busy with some kitty cats who caused him to stumble
From Cleveland to Miami the King flew the coop
Chasing a ring down in south Florida, which is where he will now hoop
The comeback kid  an man named Vick, with a throwing arm that’s hot
The folks up Philly were afraid to give him a shot
The elections brought some sweeping changes locally and in DC
It will be a real dramedy of sorts to watch and see
The economy is still slow and joblessness is sad
Housing foreclosed this is the worst in 40 years we have had
Healthcare was a area of major debate
For or against, it was worth the wait.
Our troops are still off fighting in senseless combat
Let’s pray for their return from Afganistan and Iraq
The social media arena really got large
Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter operating with no user charge
The country of Chile and their trapped 68 miners
Offer the world a lesson in humilty and to quit our whining
The gulf region was hit hard by BP’s oil spill mess
It was hard watching the wildlife and mankind being put to the test
The snow storms of Chirstmas left many at airports with flights stalled out
The stranded not having happy holidays missing family and friends caused them to pout.
So now we are here at the last day of 2010
Be happy, celebrate as we usher 2011 in!

A Winners location in Moncton

“Sometimes” 
 by Anita Baker from the Songstress album (1983)
 
Everybody wants to be a winner and take their place at the top
Everyone wants their name up in lights, for the good times never stop
Sometimes the bad luck will creep up and catch you by surprise
Your mind’s confused, you feel misused
You’ve got to leave those troubles behind

Chorus:
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes you wanna cry, sometimes you play the fool

Tag:
Hold on a little longer
Try to be a little stronger
And you can win
And everything is gonna be yours

When you cry the whole world laughs at you
They don’t seem to understand
But the time will come when the tables turn
And you’re gonna have the winning hand

Chorus:
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes you wanna cry, sometimes you play the fool

Tag:
Hold on a little longer
Try to be a little stronger
And you can win
And everything is gonna be yours

When you cry the whole world laughs at you
They don’t seem to understand
But the time will come when the tables turn
And you’re gonna have the winning hand

Sometimes the bad luck will creep up and catch you by surprise
Your mind’s confused, you feel misused
You’ve got to leave those troubles behind

Chorus 2x

Songwriters: Moten, Patrick L; Sully, Sandra;

 
In the game of life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Sometimes you wanna cry and sometimes you play the fool.
 
 It is important to understand that winners must see the triumph in reaching the top but must also understand the cost to stay there. Do you have a winner’s attitude and altitude? Are you a winner just caught up in the power and control of winning? Do you see that once you finish celebrating your win, then it is time to do the work? Is winning the end all and be all for you? 
 
Those who lose must see the triumph of losing  as a chance to fuel their desire to work hard, stay the course and try again. Losing is a temporary station, not a permanent destination. Do you have a loser’s attitude and altitude? Are you a losers caught up in pity parties and doom wrapped in gloom? Do you see that once you finish mourning the loss, then it is time to mobilize, motivate, and make it happen? Is losing the end all and be all for you?
 
Consider this: winners and losers both face challenges but it is the path that each decides to take that will make the difference. Winners are challenged to do the work  to stay the course. Just like the lyrics in the songs winners want their name to stay in lights forever. Some winners come to see that their forever is short lived because they did not work to stay, or stay to work. Winners can have the greatest win and lose it all. Losers are challenged to do the work to get on course, they must realize the tables will turn and they will eventually win. Losers must hold on, be strong and wait on their time to win. Losers can have the worse loss and win it all.  
 
Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Sometimes you wanna cry and sometimes you play the fool…

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for October 28, 2010-Awareness Spreads Knowledge (Vol.5. Iss.3)/10/25/12


Inflammatory Breast Cancer Association

Inflammatory Breast Cancer Association (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It is still relevant enough to send this blog out again and share information on Breast Cancer Awareness
AWARENESS SPREADS KNOWLEDGE
 
For over 25 years the month of October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the 31 days of October emphasis is focused on the importance of education, empowerment, and encouragement for breast health. The color pink and banded ribbons are the symbols of Breast Cancer awareness and are seen everywhere. Breast Cancer is a disease that does not discriminate by race, sex, national origin, living conditions, or income levels. The disease of Breast Cancer makes its presence known in the manner of solely invading the breast and surrounding tissue or spreading from the breast to other parts of the body. The preventative and prescriptive use of mammograms  and sonagrams as methods of detection of Breast Cancer have been a saving grace for countless women. Breast Cancer is a disease of many types and stages, there is not a one-size-fits all formula.
 
One type of Breast Cancer that has been deemed the “silent killer” is Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC). IBC is a rare type of Breast Cancer but its potential consequences deems it worthy of no longer remaining silent in order to save lives. Please read the information contained below on IBC and share it with others.
 
Inflammatory breast cancer and common treatments (Source: NCI)Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare but very aggressive type of breast cancer in which the cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the skin of the breast. This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed.” IBC accounts for 1 to 5 percent of all breast cancer cases in the United States.Symptoms
Inflammatory breast cancer often does not include a distinct lump in the breast, so it is important to be aware of the symptoms, which may include:

  • Skin of the breast appearing red, pink, reddish purple, or bruised
  • Skin having ridges or appearing pitted, like the skin of an orange (called peau d’orange)
  • Swelling, warmth, heaviness, burning, aching and/or tenderness
  • Increase in breast size
  • A nipple that is inverted (facing inward)

These symptoms usually develop quickly, over a period of weeks or months. Swollen lymph nodes may also be present under the arm, above the collarbone, or in both places. However, it is important to note that these symptoms may also be signs of other conditions such as infection, injury, or other types of cancer.

Diagnosis
Diagnosis of IBC is based primarily on the results of a doctor’s clinical examination. Biopsy, mammogram, and breast ultrasound are used to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment
Treatment consisting of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, surgery, radiation therapy and hormonal therapy is used to treat IBC:

  • Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy (anticancer drugs) is generally the first treatment for patients with IBC, and is called neoadjuvant therapy. The purpose of chemotherapy is to control or kill cancer cells, including those that may have spread to other parts of the body.
  • Surgery and Radiation Therapy – After chemotherapy, patients with IBC may undergo surgery and radiation therapy to the chest wall. Both radiation and surgery are local treatments that affect only cells in the tumor and the immediately surrounding area. The purpose of surgery is to remove the tumor from the body, while the purpose of radiation therapy is to destroy remaining cancer cells. Surgery to remove the breast (or as much of the breast tissue as possible) is called a mastectomy. Lymph node dissection (removal of the lymph nodes in the underarm area for examination under a microscope) is also done during this surgery.
  • Additional Treatments: Chemotherapy, Hormonal Therapy, Targeted Therapy – After initial systemic and local treatment, patients with IBC may receive additional systemic treatments to reduce the risk of recurrence (cancer coming back). Such treatments may include additional chemotherapy, hormonal therapy (treatment that interferes with the effects of the female hormone estrogen, which can promote the growth of breast cancer cells), targeted therapy (such as trastuzumab, also known as Herceptin®), or all three. Trastuzumab is administered to patients whose tumors overexpress the HER-2 tumor protein.

Patients may also receive supportive care to help manage the side effects of the cancer and its treatment.

For further information:
Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research organization

Breast Cancer Awareness month helps spread the word to all who will listen about this disease. No one is exempt from being touched by Breast Cancer either personally or by a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker. This is a fight everyone has an opportunity to participate in and help educate and save the lives of others.

Thursday Thinking by YoTrip for July 1, 2010-THREE T’s (Vol.2, Iss.1)


Three T’s

Each day we are given to live this thing called life, we are faced with TEST, TRIALS, and TRIBULATION. The first TEST daily is BREATHING, the exercise of intake and output of air into the body. This exercise is so taken for granted that breathing or the gift of breathe is overlooked as a vital body function.The TRIALS of BREATHING are evident when something or someone is blocking your air passage. When the pathway is not clear for incoming air or outgoing air, nothing goes in or out with ease.
trib·u·la·tion (trĭb’yə-lā’shən)
n.
Great affliction, trial, or distress; suffering: Their tribulation has finally passed. See Synonyms at trial.
An experience that tests one’s endurance, patience, or faith. See Synonyms at burden http://www.dictionary.com/wordoftheday

The TRIBULATION of BREATHING is explained best by it’s definition of an experience that encompasses TESTS and TRIALS. One cannot inhabit the activity of breathing without recognizing that it comes with a cost that is priceless. To put a value on breathing is to put a value on your life.

The gift of living requires taking the TEST of breathing daily, facing the TRIALS of having a clear air passage for breathing and experiencing the TRIBULATION of breathing in order to maintain life. Make today a day you start to celebrate the beauty of life and all the air that you BREATHE! HAPPY BREATHING DAY…~YoTrip
