Goodbye, Nelson

Today the world lost a remarkable leader.

Nelson Mandela’s footprint has been visible in my life since I was a young teen. He exemplifies what a true man of peace, character embodies and his lessons will live on in all who follow his vision, learned at his words.
I’m blessed to have grown up with him as a role model for peace, compassion, respect and dignity for my fellow human beings.

Go in peace Nelson, you fought a good fight. You were that bright spot on a dark landscape.
