A Rainy Friday

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
— Mahatma Gandhi
Happy Friday and I hope all are enjoying the day! It is a cloudy, rainy day today here in the Md/DC area..the perfect day to just lie in the bed to sleep. But I had to get up to take care of some errands and drop off a few things at various places. 
I am still heartbroken over the fact that Nelson Mandela has passed away at the age of 95!! The World has lost a true Icon and Hero!! 
I read an interesting quote in the New York Times Online edition newspaper. A man cut the tallest sunflower in his garden to remember the former South African President. 
“A special flower for a special man,” said Mr. Rosen, a 40-year-old urban farmer, as he wired the towering, six-foot stalk to the fence surrounding the spontaneous memorial that has sprung up just outside the home where Mr. Mandela died Thursday night. “I chose this flower because he towered over us all,” Mr. Rosen said. “Today it feels like the world got a little bit smaller.”

It seems as though the whole world is mourning the death of Nelson Mandela....He truly was the greatest man who lived on this Earth and his legacy will be remembered for a long time!! 

In other news, well no other news cause the biggest news is the passing of Nelson Mandela!! 

So on that note, I will say have a Blessed Day and a Great Weekend!!
