the gates are open

I have always felt that the demonstration of forgiveness is one of the most powerful tools we have in a world that needs all the love and peace it can muster. Fortunately, there are a few who have shown us the way. I knew, when Alex called me from college, to tell me he had died, and to share with me the impact that he had on her life, that Mandela’s legacy will continue.

From Maya Angelou, to Nelson Mandela, for all of us.

“Yet we, his inheritors, will open the gates wider for reconciliation.”

(for some reason, I can’t get the Youtube screen to show up, so please click, sit back and take a moment to remember)
