As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.

December 5, 2013: The world sees the passing of a great man, Nelson Mandela - one whom will always be an inspiration to the world. Nelson Mandela has taught me a great lesson in forgiveness, that no matter what we have gone through, we can choose kindness and understanding over anger. That we can choose love over hate. Quoting him, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." Thank you Madiba!
