A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Tuesday December 10, 2013 #583


“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”


~Nelson Mandela



The world lost a great man on December 5th, 2013 when Nelson Mandela passed away.  There are few individuals with his name recognition and impact.  He affected not only his own country, but the attitudes and aspirations of millions.  As I reflect on his many deeds and statements, this quote resonates greatly.  While most of us cannot conceive of living such a life of impact and meaning, all of us are capable of living to our own potential.


In honor of this great man’s life, may we all find our own voice and the courage to utilize our gifts to their utmost, making a difference for the people in our lives.
