Bidding Farewell to an International Icon – Nelson Mandela

Nelson-Mandela-009“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela

Today we bid farewell to an epic leader for civil rights, who fought tirelessly to end racial segregation and apartheid in South Africa. He spent 27 years of his life unjustly incarcerated.  The world is so privileged and honored to have lived to see his release from prison and his plight to become the first Black President of South Africa.   Prayers go out to his family.  May he rest in eternal peace.
