African Proverb: A man who takes away another man's freedom is a prisoner of hatred
 
Meaning: It was Nelson Mandela, who once made the statement "For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others". He said this not merely with his lips but with his life. As you may know, he survived 27 years in prison, forgave his enemies after release and lived an exemplary life of dignity and freedom from hatred in South Africa. He was not the real prisoner in his story. Those who imprisoned him unjustly were the prisoners, because they were motivated by hatred. Nothing enslaves like hatred! Even with this writing, I am almost certain that some people will try to use it to do the very thing that this writing is speaking against. But each of us must decide whether we want to be prisoners of hatred or promoters of freedom. Remember, the purpose of freedom is not to do what we want but to do what we ought. And as Abraham Lincoln once remarked, "Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves " . Be emancipated!
