Lessons (for me) from the Life and Death of my friend Mandiba

From his life:
You can survive 27 years in a box
You can smile throughout it all
Principles and Gandhian positions, do count
The world may eventually come to its senses
Anyone can change his/her mind about gays
From his death:
Blacks and whites, men and women, without religious symbols, veils, coverings or segregation, can
Celebrate a life together not just grieve
We still have racism and the hatred of blacks, especially smart blacks, like Christine Taubira and Barack Obama who were called “monkeys” by Anne Leclere and Barbara Espinosa, respectively.
