Nelson Mandela

The following appeared on Facebook and considering the man and how he touched the world (and me), it’s worth repeating here…

“Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison, and had this to say when he got out: ‘No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.'” [emphasis added]

Considering the man who spoke these words, “this quote truly is nothing but astonishing.” I am saddened by your passing, sir. May you rest in peace forever and always.
