Climb Every Mountain, Chase Every Dream

A Writer's Dream(s)

All our dreams can come true…if we have the desire (burning), determination, courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them (and it’s often through the very dark places where they may lead)…long enough.”

SENNA KNEW WINNING ISN’T EVERYTHING

Sport for Peace: Sport Transcending Boundaries

Senna loved winning too, of course: he was obsessed by it as champions are. But what separates him is that he came to realise there was more to life – and that is why people are making films about him today. He had the visionary mystique to know in a world of plenty you do not have to have ‘have-nots’ to have ‘haves’.

His trainer Josef Leberer told me: “During my first year with Ayrton we were driving through Sao Paulo when we saw a favela and I asked how he felt when he saw these people. He said it was very hard for him and it hurt a lot, but that you have to be powerful to effect any real change and he was not there yet.

Ahmed’s Gift of Life

“The world is full of suffering…
yet it is also filled with the overcoming of it.”

I (We) Must Not Hate!

Ahmed Khatib’s death was tragically unexceptional: the 12-year-old Palestinian was shot by Israeli soldiers while holding a toy gun. But what happened next was not. The boy’s parents donated his organs to six Israelis. They tell Chris McGreal why their decision was a gesture of both peace and resistance

CHAPTER FOUR: A NEW DAWN THE DAY THAT DREAMS CAME TRUE – THE BIRTH OF A NEW NATION

“CHAPTER FOUR: A NEW DAWN

THE DAY THAT DREAMS CAME TRUE – THE BIRTH OF A NEW NATION

For a shining moment on a brilliant day, the country that had been disowned by the world became its favourite child.

At the Presidential inauguration at the imposing Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africans of different races, strangers in so many ways, came face to face with the gulfs their history had created…togther with the means to bridge them.

Mandela opened with the words:
“We enter into a covenant that we shall build a society in which all South Africans, both black and white, will be able to walk tall…a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.
