      Here I am. In the middle hours. Hanging with Dudette. Again! OT-Ms. Nichols was so much fun to watch in ‘Snow Dogs’ with Cuba Goodings, Jr. (2 Hotties regardless of age or gender—jmpo).

    ‘The Tracks of my Tears’ of joy that I have lived to see this day! World leaders and peoples everywhere have come together in celebration of a life well lived in service to all humanity. What more proof do we need of ‘Give Peace a Chance’?

    Well, I won’t be able to keep, so I guess I will miss PBO. Can someone please ask chips to record the arrival so I can see it tomorrow?

    Oh wow, they just showed the President and the First Lady up in the big screen in the stadium and the crowd went crazy, completely drowning the poor fellow who was at the mic….He had to stop speaking for a few mins for the crowd to silence…:-)

    I hope they don’t miss calling out anyone, which would be so easy to do given the circumstances and all that is going on. The problem with naming dignitaries is that once you start, you have to cover everyone in order not to have hurt feelings.

    Was that Chelsea I spotted beside Hillary? If so, probably explains why Bill didn’t travel on AF1.

    I had to discontinue the CBS feed once they started “narrating”. Ugh. Can’t they just let the ceremony flow?? Thank goodness for CSPAN2.

  42. December 10, 2013 at 6:14 am

    Lots of enthusiasm in that stadium!!! Rather difficult challenge to get them to allow the speakers to deliver their messages.

    It will be rather interesting to watch what happens when President Obama steps to the microphone :)

    Good morning everyone. Been up since 4:00 watching from various sources. Now watching on C-span and the White House feed. Some of the ABC commentary was tiresome, just as well that local news cut them off. Waiting eagerly for PBO.

    The roots of Mandela’s service
    Temba Maqubela is headmaster at Groton School in Groton, Massachusetts. He fought against apartheid, escaped persecution, and, in 1986, came to the United States as a political refugee.
    By Temba Maqubela,

    No one should have doubted that, in the end, Nelson Mandela would be buried in his village, not in a grand public setting in Johannesburg. For it was Qunu that made Mandela a leader.
    ………………..

    To really know Mandela, it helps to understand the concept of ubuntu. The Xhosa word is difficult to define, but it refers to the interconnectivity of one to another. In a Xhosa village like Mandela’s, when someone asks, “How are you?” the answer is not “I am fine.” It is, “We are fine.”…

    In Qunu, Mandela lived a life of relative privilege, but in the village culture, that called for an extra dose of humility. His uncle was the acting king of the Thembus, part of the Xhosa people, and young Mandela was present during the many meetings in his village, where he would hear the egalitarian aspirations of elders, absorbing their dreams and frustrations. Mandela also herded cattle, as I and any boy growing up far from the townships did. Humility defined him.

    Yet, when Mandela was 33 and heading the Youth League of the African National Congress, he announced publicly during protests on Jan Van Riebeeck Day, a holiday celebrating the whites’ arrival in South Africa, that he would someday become the first president of a liberated South Africa. Were these the words of a humble man? Yes—but also the words of a man who realized black South Africa needed energy, and, despite the callous and brutal killings, hope. Those who were fighting against apartheid had, up to that moment, been focused on equal rights. They had not considered for a moment that the highest office in the country could belong to a black…

    Poor lady~ the crowd is singing and her voice isn’t that loud. I think the crowd is similar to the TOD Gang, and can’t wait for PBO to speak.

    I hope security doesn’t have to move to quieten those behind the podium. They seem to be having their own celebration/memorial – a pity they won’t cooperate a bit more.
