And perhaps the title for a brand new book!

Senna Knew Winning Isn’t Everything!

Featured Image -- 306

Senna loved winning too, of course: he was obsessed by it as champions are. But what separates him is that he came to realise there was more to life – and that is why people are making films about him today. He had the visionary mystique to know in a world of plenty you do not have to have ‘have-nots’ to have ‘haves’.

His trainer Josef Leberer told me: “During my first year with Ayrton we were driving through Sao Paulo when we saw a favela and I asked how he felt when he saw these people. He said it was very hard for him and it hurt a lot, but that you have to be powerful to effect any real change and he was not there yet.

Ahmed’s Gift of Life

“The world is full of suffering…
yet it is also filled with the overcoming of it.”

I (We) Must Not Hate!

Ahmed Khatib’s death was tragically unexceptional: the 12-year-old Palestinian was shot by Israeli soldiers while holding a toy gun. But what happened next was not. The boy’s parents donated his organs to six Israelis. They tell Chris McGreal why their decision was a gesture of both peace and resistance

Mandela Rainbow: To the End of the Rainbow…orTouching the Rainbow

Nelson Mandela: My Inspiration (and "Inspirator")

“We enter into a covenant that we shall build a society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall, without and fear in their hearts, assured of their inalienable right to human dignity – a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world,” Nelson Mandela famously said when he was sworn in as South Africa’s first black president in 1994. So it is fitting that a rainbow would appear over the Union Buildings, the country’s official seat of power in Pretoria, and where the beloved world leader’s body is currently lying in state.

To the End of the Rainbow (THE END)

TO THE END OF THE RAINBOW: A New "Work" by Craig Lock

SPLENDOUR (THE END)

The two bitter adversaries, sworn enemies for so many years clasped and shook hands, firmly; then embraced each other warmly. They raised each others hands to the heavens. Resplendent were the bright beams of forgiveness for past deeds, evil deeds and grace that shone forth.

And overhead, gently breaking over the pitch black horizon, in grandiose splendour, the golden early morning sun announced the coming of a beautiful new day…one filled with great insight and brilliant light in a new glorious dawn. Resplendent in the bright glory of God, a bright morning star overhead to guide these two leaders of the twentieth century and their lives .. forever.resplendent in the bright glory of God, a bright morning star to guide him and his life… forever

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”

TO THE END OF THE RAINBOW: A New "Work" by Craig Lock

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.

Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”

— Indian Proverb

And another version …

“When you were born you were crying and everyone else was smiling.
Live your life so at the end, your’re the one who is smiling and everyone else is crying.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson, great American essayist, philosopher and writer

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

Nelson Mandela: My Inspiration (and "Inspirator")

CHAPTER FOUR: A NEW DAWN THE DAY THAT DREAMS CAME TRUE – THE BIRTH OF A NEW NATION

March 29, 2010

“CHAPTER FOUR: A NEW DAWN

THE DAY THAT DREAMS CAME TRUE – THE BIRTH OF A NEW NATION

For a shining moment on a brilliant day, the country that had been disowned by the world became its favourite child.

At the Presidential inauguration at the imposing Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africans of different races, strangers in so many ways, came face to face with the gulfs their history had created…togther with the means to bridge them.

Posted on September 23, 2010

Mandela opened with the words:
“We enter into a covenant that we shall build a society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall…a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.
