“We will Never See the Likes of Him Again…” Read the Full Transcript of President Barack Obama’s Speech at Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service
Posted on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013
“To Graça Machel and the Mandela family; to President (Jacob) Zuma and members of the government; to heads of state and government, past and present; distinguished guests – it is a singular honor to be with you today, to celebrate a life unlike any other.
To the people of South Africa – people of every race and walk of life – the world thanks you for sharing Nelson Mandela with us. His struggle was your struggle. His triumph was your triumph. Your dignity and hope found expression in his life, and your freedom, your democracy is his cherished legacy.
It is hard to eulogize any man – to capture in words not just the facts and the dates that make a life, but the essential truth of a person – their private joys and sorrows; the quiet moments and unique qualities that illuminate someone’s soul. How much harder to do so for a giant of history, who moved a nation toward justice, and in the process moved billions around the world.

Morning exercise is great for your body metabolism. When you wake up in the morning do as little as aerobics to start your day, trust me this alone (OK and your breakfast too),will pull you through the day.
I know some of you may feel reluctant to exercise, maybe because you have to be at work early enough or outright laziness lol...yeah that's right, because what other excuse would you have for not working out or stretching those muscles before the day starts.
There are so many reasons why we should embrace exercise as our daily lifestyle routine. From my own experiences-
~Keeps you healthy
~Help keep a regular heart rate, so you don't have to feel tired or weak when you do a little task.
~Checks your weight
~Makes you wealthy; since health is wealth
~Keeps you in tune, body, mind, spirit and soul!
Let us be encouraged from now on. Write it down, make it your screen saver or better still choose a partner that will assist you with it. With exercise, you will feel empowered!

It fell down today. My office cup is special because it was one of the many gifts given to me at the end of my service year as a teacher. It reminds me of those lovely students I taught;their enthusiasm and participation. Above all, it reminds me of what I learnt as a teacher and how one can be appreciated for good deeds.
This is dedicated to the students of Command Day Secondary school Abeokuta, Nigeria.
