It seems noteworthy to me that leaders the world over have been stepping up to eulogize Nelson Mandela.
India and Pakistan, Israel and Iran and Palestine, America and Russia and China, and many more, all agreeing on Mandela’s achievements in pursuit of peace, freedom and equality.
Perhaps we as nations could all benefit from looking at that ever-growing list. Perhaps we could each look at who else is on that list and try to build a dialogue with them based on those principles of peace and equality and freedom.
Perhaps, if we’re listening, Mandela has one last great lesson to teach us all. It would be a fitting memorial if we all were to learn it.
