'We are all meant to shine, as children do.' N Mandela
Back in June, when we got that first (fake) report of Mr Mandela's death, Friday turned to me, eyes brimming and asked: 'Will black people and white people now have to live separately again?'
This morning she remembered the conversation we had then and said, 'But even now that he's really died we can still live free hey Mum?'
And Sunday added, 'Yes, Mr Mandela will still live in our hearts.'
I pledge never to let my children forget him, or forget that they shared his time on earth.
We must always look back to know how to move forward.
