Magic Monday – Nelson Mandela on Ubuntu: I Am, Because Of You

Good Monday!!! How are you all doing today? I write this today while listening to some great classics and enjoying some fantastic company. Oh goodness am I lucky and grateful. So yesterday I had the good fortune to watch part of the Nelson Mandela memorial service. It touched me to see how one man could become so significant and touch the lives of so many people. And than it dawned on me, that only a great man could deal with great circumstances; that is what Mandela was, a great man born out of trying circumstances.

Below is a rare internet gem; Mandela in his own words explaining the South African philosophy of Ubuntu. Ubuntu, I am because of you and people are only people because of other people. I love this philosophy. Enjoy!
