It still surprises me how impacted I was by the death of Nelson Mandela. It has invoked within me many harsh yet beautiful moments of reflection. And in those moments of reflection, in some strange way I see myself, not as a single man, but as a man among an ocean of men and women with the all capacity of greatness. A capacity that is ready within reach should we ever decide to acknowledge it. And I believe that is the message that Nelson Mandela dedicated his life to sharing, that we are all capable of greatness, and that it is our responsibility as human beings to always reach for it, even when we are reaching alone. Because when we reach for the greatness that is our god given gift, we inspire others to do the same. And in doing so, we create a better world for everyone. Although gone, his memory and legacy will live forever in his message. R.I.P. Nelson Mandela. ~alx.O
