Welcome to our first series on Reflections.
Have you heard of the word INVICTUS?
Invictus, is a word so exquisite that it requires a whole write up on it.
I came across the word and wondered the true meaning of it. As I dug deeper into its meaning, I was quite amazed at the power and meaning of the word.
Invictus means “unconquerable” or “undefeated”. It is derived from Latin.
It is a word worthy to describe the Invictus Games, to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and demonstrate life beyond disability. The word is beautifully described through the Invictus poem by William Ernest Henley. It is a word that brought much comfort to Nelson Mandela during his quiet time in his prison cell while he was incarcerated. The famous Invictus movie directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman as Mandela and Matt Damon as captain of South African’s rugby team brought a nation to its knees as one nation.
Even in today’s fight against COVID-19, the word has a place to bring us together as a world of humanity. Unconquerable and undefeated, we are fighting this virus and we are seeing a new norm that is better than the one we left behind.
We hope you’ll enjoy the video on the word Invictus and enjoy our poem collection list.
