Normally on Fridays I will pick a famous quote and talk about it, today I would like to change it up. In honor of the passing of a great man that has accomplished so much in his time and inspired so many, I would like to share a few things about Nelson Mandela. I need not say much myself. His quotes, his videos, his very image speaks for so much inspiration. I dream to carry an impact that this man has made on the world, to my end of days as he has. I seem so small next to what this man is about, but in time I shall inspire many more.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”-Nelson Mandela.
Once a fighter always a fighter! Conquer your fears, and learn from them.
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”-Nelson Mandela.
Respect and be grateful for the freedoms you have. Make a difference not only to yourself but to those around you and the world you live in.
Nelson Mandela may be prepared to die but is our world prepared to lose him?
Rest in peace Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. You will never be forgotten, you will continue to inspire those that never even had the chance to live when you did.
