Nelson Mandela has passed from our world. Most people that do not travel internationally or do not look at the world as a global picture may not think of Nelson Mandela. He essentially made South Africa the amazingly open and inviting country that it is today. He helped South Africa become a diverse country that is accepting of multiple ethnicities, races, languages, and religions.
Many people have compared Nelson Mandela to the Dali Llama and Mother Teresa. He has influenced people and generation worldwide with his behavior and inspirational quotes.
"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you have been altered" ~Madiba (his tribal name)
No matter where you are in life, there is always more journey ahead. ~Nelson Mandela
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but rising every time we fall.” ~Nelson Mandela
There are countless more quotes that our daily inspiration. I have traveled to his great country and certainly hope to return again.
The world has truly lost one of the "good guys." He was an inspiration to us all. Nelson Mandela may you rest in peace
