Happy Birthday, Madiba!


Part of being optimistic is keeping 
one's head pointed toward the sun, 
one's feet moving forward." 

— Nelson Mandela, who is 94 years old today.

    1. Ms Moon, it amazes me just to think how his life unfolded, simply because he kept taking committed action after committed action, learning from the missteps too.

  2. Astounding. Just the tiniest thought of that man and all he did and has done is just astounding.

    1. elizabeth, i so agree. he used his life, even the part when it seemed he was sitting still in a small cell for more than two decades. he was still developing his heart and mind.
