“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself… Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.”
I was 7 years old when Nelson Mandela was let out of prison. I am grateful to have lived in South Africa and that I got to see things change with my own eyes. What an extraordinary time to have been alive! He was truly one of the most amazing men that has ever lived and he will be sorely missed, not only by South Africans but by all people.
