"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."

Monday was the birthday of one of the most important and influential people to ever cross this earth. Nelson Mandela celebrated his 93rd birthday on Monday. There is so much that I could say, and want to say about him. However, he says everything better himself, and I will let him do just that.

"In my country, we go to prison first and then become President."

Nelson Mandela's Inaugural Address

Mr. Mandela epitomizes what it is to be a leader, a hero, and a human being. The inspiration that he has given not only myself, but thousands of other people throughout the world, is endless. He is a beacon of light in a world that has many issues to work through. With every negative, there is a positive, and Mr. Mandela reminds me of that every time I think of him.

Thank you, Mr. Mandela.

"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires."
