Thought if fitting today to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela. I think this Poem i wrote some time ago kind of sums up the way he lived and his attitude to life.

A life worth living

Let the joy of life forever fill my heart
May each breath I take be as mountain air
When a loved one needs my compassion
Make sure always that I am present there
Let me see all aspects of beauty in the world
From a sunset to the glow of stars at night
May I feel the warmth and love of family
In the smiles of happy children find delight
Through all my life in each and every way
Let me be of generous heart and giving
Then when my life is coming to a close
I will know I lived a life worth living.

For Nelson

Nice sentiment, John.

No two ways about it, he was a great man.

I'm highly motivated to be un-ambitious today.

A loss to humankind.

In a world where so many feel they should have entitlement just handed to them for doing very little, this single human exhibited a lifetime of what is attainable if you are patient, humble and have desire.

A true legend in our time, and a lesson to us all.

Rest now Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, you did more than your fair share, let us hope those you leave behind can keep building on the mighty foundations you put in place.
