Legacy

Dr. Foster Mobley // History, Quotables, Wisdom Leading

A world figure passed this week, giving us a rare glance into the incredible power of a man's actions driven by the purest of his conviction. Nelson Mandela's life is a towering story of determination, compassion, and reconciliation. Far from sainthood, 91 world leaders traveled great distances to honor a man with feet of clay, saint and sinner, lover and fighter. He was a man committed to removing the shackles of bondage from his people, doing whatever that took and paying a steep price. He was also a man who's jailer was his pallbearer, whose message and life of forgiveness will be a model for generations to come. Mandela's legacy? Reconciliation. If you distilled your legacy to one word, what's the word you will be remembered for?
