Mandela

I cannot imagine spending 27 years of my life in prison for graciously trying to reconcile a population.  Nelson Mandela did it in a way in which many could not–he did it without showing bitterness or strife toward others.  My quote today is from Mandela.  We should count it a blessing to learn from his gracious example of selflessness and forgiveness.

“Difficulties break some men but make others.”  ~ Nelson Mandela
