Mandela Day

 Today Nelson Mandela turns 95! I read this quote of his and had to share it - let's be that generation. 

“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
Nelson Mandela

Here is a photo of a little girl I met in South Africa - Nelson Mandela's homeland. Whenever I look at this image it gives me hope - that children once caught in the poverty cycle, abandoned and labeled as worthless... can rise up, dance and become leaders of CHANGE.
