Nelson Mandela, my teacher

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Nelson Mandela, my hero
Here is my tribute to an audacious yet humble man. He made the world a better place, but it was not without tribulation.

I look at Nelson Mandela as a teacher who lived the lessons that he taught.

In order to make a difference in this world, we must get our mind and our heart in agreement with our destiny. Education and goodness within our hearts can help heal the world. Let us live our lives in such a way as to bring healing, joy and wisdom to this hurting world.

    We were blessed to have Nelson Mandela in our lives. He certainly "walked the walk".

    And it's too bad that what he tried to teach was viewed for 30 yrs. as an imprisonable offense. Thanks for this blog.
