Words of truth

The great Nelson Mandela is one of those people who always inspires.  He is the very kind of person I had in mind when I first decided to write a blog encouraging others to get involved and to make a difference in this world.  Listen to the words of truth from any of his speeches and you'll see what I mean.

One very profound statement by him that I just read was about love and hate.  Read President Mandela's words below, and think about them -

"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."

It is no wonder the South African leader has received more than 250 awards over four decades, including the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize.
