I'd like to thank Nelson Mandela for the colour because… 

and for bringing colour into our lives, because you've been an excellent teacher, your life u've lived in less pride has had great influence in our lives. Ur immense kindness, 

generosity & ur unquestioning love & tolerance for all humanity pays great dividends...

on this v.day I would like to wish the world more visionaries like u, Madiba to label u 

great would be an understatement, describe u in simple words ""Pure""... I am forever indebted & Thankful of this opportunity to take part in celebrating your 95th birthday 

& wishing u best of wishes along wiv evyfing your heart desires... 

U've done us (human-beings) proud.

I'd like to thank Nelson Mandela for the colour because… 

you have been such an inspiration to me throughout my life. I will never forget meeting you in Melbourne at a function not long after you were released from jail. You thanked me for attending the function and gave me a big hug. To which I replied you're thanking me, I drove 35 minutes to be here tonight, you've endured 27 years of the most severe discrimination and overcome it to be here. Your response was to laugh and give me another hug and a tap on my head. I only wish I could be so humble. I'm in a wheelchair and so this big awesome man was only too willing to bend down to me to give me a hug. 

I'll never forget it.
