Happy 100th Birthday Nelson Mandela!
Today would have been the 100th birthday of former South African president and human rights warrior Nelson Mandela, who died December 5, 2013 at age 95.
And he was admired and respected around the world. While he would humbly say "I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances ", the rest of the world saw him as a global icon and a leader in the same territory as the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Mahatma Gandhi.
We sill have his words to peruse, do some hard solid thinking about, and most importantly live by, especially on this day. .
