"The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple, and love without measure." ~Tibetan Proverb
If only we had him for a leader in Canada. He was person who could unite.
He transcends the planet.
I just read your comment on Jack's Naples, FL/ Hartford CT blog that you met Nelson Mandela in the '90's. What a thrill.
Yes, he was such a nice man, a real visioner who had a difficult life and yet kept his head up.
True words and a good post for today.
Beautiful tribute Kate. And I see from comments that you actually met him. That had to have been a superior moment.
He was a great example of honour, courage, integrity, and decency. We will not see his like again.
Such a sad day!
I second that!
a big spirit.
Truly a force of life, and a uniting power.
He cast a long shadow!
I like what Mersad said.
He will be missed world wide...
He was a gift to the world. How lucky we are that he walked among us.
Un homme comme il y en a trop peu, le courage et la détermination, admirable personne que le monde entier connaît qui nous a quitté !bonne soirée à toi aussi! Cath.
No kidding?! You got to meet him. What an honor!
No kidding; I even got to sit in his office desk chair.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
