Such a sad day. My heart is full of gratitude for this great man. I lived In South Africa for five years so I can understand the monumental impact he had on changing the country. He showed us how to live with courage, determination, compassion, wisdom and forgiveness. He was able to see the bigger picture and not get hung up on pettiness and revenge.
He took a mean spirited, divisive and cruel regime and showed that a leader can be open hearted, caring and kind.
I suggest we use him as a role model. And as a tribute to him forgive someone today who has harmed or been against you and face and step through one of your greatest fears.
That is going to be my thank you to him – to actively use his inspiration to make a change in my own life and hopefully that can help others too.
