Mandela memorial..

Got up at 4:30 am to watch the Madiba memorial... essentially to hear Obama's words.. He was the Star of the Show.. that's why everybody else went... He walks in the Path of freedom that Mandela made partly

I watched the lot... all 8 hours..  today the Cask is moved through Pretoria, which is another , milestone event... I got up at 3 am for that... The Biographical Movie 'The Long walk to freedom'  was due for Premier just a day after Mandela's Passing, and the Actor Idris Elba who played him was too distraught to attend it...

the film has already been Slagged off as a shallow movie of the week in terms of content and quality.. Which is unimportant though disappointing, but that does not detract from the fact that it is a true story.. as long as it is told is all that matters.. and not forgotten..
