Unsung Heroine of South Africa

Unsung Heroine of South Africa
Published: 16 April 2018 (264 Views)
Mama Winnie Nomzamo Madikizela- Mandela has always been unassuming, never flashy, But her name deserves to be up in bright neon lights.

Our magnificent Mom, Winnie, is our Heroine! In her eyes, no one is a zero, And she is a blessing to all who crosses her path.

Successfully raising her own two (2) children, She also helped to raise all the stray children in her neighborhood. Her guiding motto is "You can't believe in God and Not care about others - whether it is people, plants, or animals."

An extraordinary human being, generous to a fault, She would give her last slice of bread To anyone who needed to be fed. Nothing, including her time, is too good or too precious To share with family, friends, and even strangers.

Often she'd sacrifice her own happiness, If it meant that others would be happy. While Mama Winnie is very humble, forgiving, and non-judgmental, She is nobody's fool and can be a fierce lioness, Quick to defend her values and those she loves.

Caring mothers like her are especially rare today, And should be declared National Treasures. Because of her powerful influence and the solid values she instilled, She was stronger, kinder, more conscientious, and better person.

Big Mama Winfred Nomzamo Madikizela-Mandela helped us to see life in a more positive and compassionate way – to treat people How I would like to be treated.

Even though she is not a regular church-goer, She prays several times daily and her home is her altar. We thank God every day for blessing South Africa with this wonderful Mother, And for her continued unforeseen presence in our lives.

Big Mama, you will always be our heroine!
