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.
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.
