Mandela was an amazing example of what wonders a purpose, a vision and a dream, armed with an iron will, unyeilding perseverance and continuous persistence, backed with the readiness to sacrifice everything for justice, is capable of.
He was a modern day example of how we must be fearless and bold, of how believing in yourself yields much more than you ever thought of, because you may never truly be able to realize for what you are capable of, until you aim high…….high above what others may think, and most of all high above of what YOU think…..way high.
He achieved what ‘seemed’ to many as impossible. But he, broke that illusion, tore it way apart. He had no army, no big money, no ‘contacts’ to help him out, he persevered and God gave what he persevered for.
We do have a lot to learn from him, I hope we do and also that we teach our coming generation about the value of principles, integrity, equality and justice in the right sense of it.
