While not having my TV connected -- because I choose not to watch mindless TV -- and not listening to the radio either, I had no idea that President Mandela had passed away. Of course when I found out, my heart ached. A man of strength, character, charm, integrity, honor, wit and gentleness, he will be sorely missed. I think President Obama got it right when he said in memory of Mandela, "When you need strength for whatever struggle/problem you are going through, think about Madiva."
I'll end with a wonderful quote from President Mandela, a titan among humans, "As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew that if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.
Question? How is it that people love all the colors of the rainbow, but not all the colors of human beings? The color of a person's skin does not determine their character. True character is determined by a person's integrity. Cheers!!
