8: Long Walk To Freedom
In our country of South Africa, there was a great man named Nelson Mandela. He was so great that he became President of our country. However, before that he had a life filled with trouble. It took him many years to stop these troubles and become President. He became a hero to people all over the world. He called his life a Long Walk To Freedom. One of the most important things he did was to say that we all needed to live with Peace and Love. When we would talk with him, he would tell us to sing about Peace and Love when we travel around the world. We wrote this song about Nelson Mandela because we love him so much.
