Doing the right thing

 

flowers 008

A while back I read the book Invictus which is the story of Nelson Madela and his beloved country.  It’s very touching and very true.  The most difficult part in the reading is keeping the characters straight because the names are so unfamiliar.   

 

Last night Jimmy and I watched the movie based on the book.  The book begins with his years of prison, learning to understand the “so called enemy”, his strict routines, and his deep desire for fairness in his living and serving for all people.  The movie begins with his release from prison and election as president.

 

This man is truly an example for all. 

I encourage you to read the book and watch the movie.  

The life changing ideas are good medicine.
