“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life – one that ANYONE can run and win.”

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”

My Prayer for South Africa 1994 (and especially Southern Africa)

South Africa: "the Beloved Country"

“We join in prayer to celebrate this new nation and surrender its destiny to you.

We give thanks in our hearts to the founding of this vibrant nation of diverse peoples,

a beautiful yet tragic land built upon the rivers of blood, that flowed from our forefathers;

yet still flow today…a ‘happy sad’ land of such contrasts.

We give thanks for and bless the souls of those,

who came before us and prepared this nation,

to nurture and to save it;

because so many gave their lives for it,

some selflessly and many needlessly.”

 For the full prayer go to
