There are three kinds of people in this world. 3) Those who cause harm to others; 2) Those who do no harm; 1) Those who give of themselves to help others. Nelson Mandela was at the pinnacle of category # 1. Jailed for 27 years of his life for fighting for what he believed was right for his country and the world, so his people would no longer be oppressed, and he comes out with love in his heart! Not that he didn’t feel anger–he did–but it wasn’t as important to him as love and peace and forgiveness. Those more pure, more wise thoughts overrode his anger. He came out forgiving. He either must have seen innocence in his oppressors or he realized the futility of anger and hate in solving anything. Let him be a lesson to all of us. I am sad but so grateful to have had him bless this world. Imagine what would happen if the thoughts of those in category 3 even changed to those of group 2. What are we willing to give to make the world a better place for all? All we have to do is see with more peace, love, wisdom and forgiveness.
