In world where there are too many false prophets, too few real heros, and a scant supply of people whose character and will combine to be a force for positive change, Nelson Mandela stood tall.
My favorite quote of his is simple. It does not ramble, it does not require long moments of contemplation, although it may very well inspire them.
"It always seems impossible until it's done."
It applies to everything. Social justice, equality, hell, getting the laundry pile down from mountain to molehill.
That we all apply his simple wisdom in both the larges and smalls of our lives and our societies...
Rest in peace.
