Perspective
« on: June 11, 2010, 10:39:09 AM »
Sometimes events happen that put our problems into perspective. For me, such an event is the recent tragedy befalling the family of Nelson Mandela on the eve of his country's hosting the world's biggest sporting event, the FIFA World Cup. Mandela was to attend the opening game, but sent an inspirational message instead. I was reminded of his amazing life and all he and his family and country have endured to make it to this point, only to have tragedy strike again. Nelson Mandela handles it all with grace and dignity; truly a remarkable man.
Respect ... is appreciation of the separateness of the other person, of the ways in which he or she is unique.
