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.
