When I was in High School, I was part of a group named SOTA – Students Opposed to Apartheid. I learned a lot from seeing movies such as Cry Freedom, talking to teachers and other adults about these things, and reading – a lot. My world view was forever changed. Many, many years later I worked for World Vision, where I had several colleagues from South Africa. Some are still friends.

The world needs more leaders who can really lead like Mandela. RIP.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
