Inspiration for Parents from Mandela

See also

This past week, Nelson Mandela passed away after 95 years of fighting for peace, both in his country and the world. He was a South African anti-apartheid activist and philanthropist, but more than that, he was a restorer of hope. What lessons can we teach our children about Nelson Mandela?
1. “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change to the world.”

2. “We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”

3. “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.”

4. “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

5. “It’s always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Take heed to these quotes and allow them to inspire your children to do better and be better. They are our future leaders. The world is changing but some things will always remain. We will always need sound leadership, peace makers, lovers of mankind, activists, all those individuals who work to keep our world in harmony. Let Nelson Mandela’s life be a testimony that even out of obscurity, some of the most influential people can arise—your child could be the next Nobel Peace Prize recipient.

Peace and Blessings,
