I love learning from inspiring people. Those who dedicate their lives seeking peace for their country, seeking triumph over adversity and those whose lives do not center on selfish motives. I learned that we all are somewhat selfish but it's that decision to be unselfish and think of others often and make that sacrific for others that makes the difference.
I never really learned much about Nelson Mandela when I was younger, but he seemed to be such a powerful figure in the last decade. I saw him on tv often, heard about news that involved his name and his cause. But these remarks he shared during his speeches made a mark on me and I am glad someone decided to put it all together in one article.
