In honour of  today’s United Nations’ Nelson Mandela day:

I read a quote last year that impacted me profoundly:

Each one, teach one. 

The maxim is attributed to Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mendela  at 95

I know nothing of this man but what the news media has chosen to reveal of his amazing life. What I do know is that he lived well his own life melody, living his life in crescendo all the way to the age of ninety-five.

He is a model not only of how one person can truly make a difference, but also a model of a man who lived his aging well.

For me, that phrase encapsulates his legacy epitaph.

As a way of honouring the phenomenal life and times of Nelson Mandela, may each of us, teach one.

Every day.
