On The Passing Away of Nelson Mandela....

Many around the World have been reflecting upon the life and legacy of Mandela.  As I have written in other "channels" of my evolving "outsiders" network,  my own life has been inspired by what Mandela did.   I was reflecting upon his legacy as I also reflected upon Education.   

All educators, in their own way, work to live up to this admonition from Madiba

"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."

Some of his notable quotes were compiled by the Guardian of London.    How such a man could be so forgiving continues to startle me.   I pray that this "ordnary face" will continue to learn the lessons.
