Maaaaan I had been prepping my heart for this moment. Threw out my life I studied some of the words & actions of Mr. Mandela & Im still taken back by his will to take a stand for change & equality. The compromises that he & Ghandi made for what’s right has kept me inspired. He was for sure someone I wanted to meet before he physically left this earth, but he still has touched my heart & life in such great ways. I mourn & salute Nelson Mandela & the greatest tribute we can ever pay to Mr. Mandela & the men & women who took major strides to change this world is to continue to stand for something & pushing humanity forward & continue to take the ‘im’ off of Possible.
