"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are POWERFUL beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of GOD. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

In times like these of collective sorrow over the loss of such an important public figure, how are we to respond to the celebration and sorrow? I suggest we remember the person and his purpose, then challenge ourselves to step up to our own purpose and live fully. Mandela was lead by a great sense of justice, faith, sacrifice, and love.
