Nelson Mandela: When great individuals pass

I was contemplating the passing of Nelson Mandela and others who have touched my life.

That when they go it is then our responsibility to pick up and live the qualities that so touch us about them. That though they may pass, their role can continue to live on within us.

The playful smile of  Mandela’s way, the courage he embodied to stand relentlessly for what was right, and most of all, his power to love.

With him now gone who will stand if not us?

In honour of him it is now we that must stand, and stand we must, for love.
