Nelson Mandela: long may you inspire

I could not let the day pass without adding my humble tribute to the millions of more eloquent ones around the globe.

  • A man whose vision transformed his 8×8 prison cell into a university.
  • A man whose hope was undiminished during 27 years in prison.
  • A man whose forgiveness earned him the trust needed to unite a divided country.
  • A man whose courage led him to denounce the world’s superpowers in his fight for social justice
  • A man whose perseverance changed his country and the world.

May our current leaders be inspired and aspire to the moral leadership Nelson Mandela exemplified.  May they seek to unite rather than to divide.
