1:07 am
god live within you. and so that they shared that within the family unit, and then of course the community and that is how he treated everybody to this day. i also asked her about the future leadership of south africa as it seems that this is one of the last iconic leaders and to, to pass away. and this is what she had to say. i always remind people that, you know, my dad was a grown man by the time the world knew of him and man with, with grandchildren. so that when i look at the young people of south africa today, i have great hope for the kind of leadership that our country needs. i see that our country actually has besides, of course, how south africa and the rest of the world will honor his legacy. i asked her how her and her family will commemorate him, and she said that they will include both traditions of the family that close tradition and the christian values. and that is they would,
1:08 am
