We went to a concert at a wine farm here last night. One of the items was a tribute to Madiba. I recalled how I read about how he, even before he became the President, was involved in ensuring conservation was taken seriously in SA (The Full Circle by Dave Varty). Two songs were played in this tribute, and this one, I think is so fitting for us all right now:

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause

And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this

That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star

And I'll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I'll reach
The unreachable star


"The Impossible Dream (The Quest)" is a popular song composed by Mitch Leigh, with lyrics written by Joe Darion.

Definitely congruent with the current threats impeding our beautiful animal and natural heritage, DB.
