If you’re wondering where to find proof of the goodness deep within us all; proof that the human spirit shines through the darkness; look no farther than your own heart. Recall how you felt when you heard, yesterday, that Nelson Mandela is dead. You can’t quite put your finger on it, can you? It’s just a hole in your heart.
Nearly every world leader from politicians to tycoons to top artists in every field jumped into social media within minutes of hearing the news to laud Mandela as one of the greatest people who ever lived.
Hundreds gathered, in the middle of the night, outside Mandela’s home to pay their respects to the icon of peace and reconciliation.
Every one of us can recognize goodness when we see it. That’s the proof.
FOB Greg Bover chose a wonderful, inspiring quote from Nelson Mandela this past June. Check out that post and resolve that today, as you mourn the passing of perhaps the greatest man, with whom you had the honor to share this planet, you will no longer settle for “a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
