Mr. Nelson Mandela former president of South Africa has been laid to rest.   Most of the world leaders shared the struggle and pain endured by this great man. They came to honor the idea of a free South Africa. Trusting other countries around the world will take hold  that all men and women  should have  the right to govern with dignity and a sense of nationalism.  What America calls Natural Law, “supposedly inherent principles of ethics and government,” Webster Legal Dictionary.   Which bring the point does America need a Mandela, a Madiba? We have a Black American  president, he however must represent all the people not just black Americans. There is Al Sharpton Leader of the Black Action Network based in New York  city. Can he move Black America forward to equality? I ask, who in America can,  at this time, curtail poverty and homelessness, gang activity by our youth. Under employment, medical issues that kill?  Is a collective black media pressing for coverage of issues and research the solutions? The church and its high-profile leaders, can they forge and produce compassion and funding of needs?  There is an answer, one that has brought change to this day. All Americans of good faith who understood the treatment and pain of Mandela during those years in prison (27) can become proactive again in their own space and surroundings and bring change. “It was all of you who help free him.  God Bless you all.”
