“I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Nelson Mandela
This quote is so well construct it is known and quoted by many. It displays the power of a message being clear, concise and compelling. It shows Mandela’s personal courage, commitment to principles and desire to live in harmony with his foes. He knows the risks he is taking, the power of his enemies and believes so strongly in his principles and ideal of democratic society based on equality that he’s prepared to die for it.
Where is this type of leadership in America gone?
