“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
A man who made a free South Africa possible, a man who taught perseverance, forgiveness and compassion, a man who left the world a far better place than he found it. A giant of our generation and a man worth our admiration, respect and our condolences, has left a hole in the moral compass of the world, not just South Africa. We should all take some time to reflect on his accomplishments and I hope you are not too jaded by the world, or stripped of your compassion to understand that a man like Nelson Mandela, is worth grieving for.
