Richard Ivory: Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela!

“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their peers, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.”  

―  Robert F. Kennedy

Mandela was a complicated man living in complicated times. He taught us to be fearless despite the odds, to stand for justice despite the consequences and to forgive, even when undeserved. While not a perfect man, he left a legacy that few men could ever hope to attain. 

The world this week lost a great visionary, a warrior, and a great teacher.

Rest in Peace, Nelson Mandela!
