Lessons in grace
I woke up this morning in London, turned on EuroNews and saw silent
footage of Mandela’s first steps as a free man. It took a minute to realize why
they were showing this. Then I guessed, flipped to CNN, and saw the news.
I’ve since been watching footage, listening to commentators,
eyes filling with tears again and again. What a man. What a life. What an
inspiration. RIP, Mandela.
