Great piece! It's so saddening when icons/heroes pass on- they're often shining beacons of hope in a hopeless/unfortunate situation and it can be easy to feel lost when they are no longer physically with us.
However, you make a great point. We can't continue to reply on these brave souls who have often committed much of their life to making the world a better place. By taking their mission and life perspective upon ourselves, we can spread their influence further and ensure that their life continues to resonate years later. Carrying on their legacy is such a great way to respect them and their sacrifices.
What do you think are some ways we can embody the traits of amazing figures such as Nelson Mandela in our daily life? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
