Nelson Mandela

acrylic on canvas
How many people do you know or heard of after spend about 30 years in prison, assume leadership of a mass movement. Then jointly receive a noble prize. After that vote the first time in a democratic election where he was elected president. All of this while he was in his 70's. He got remarried on his 80th birthday. And I thought life was suppose to be down hill after I turn 30 LOL. His example show us to keep moving forward and progressing no matter the circumstance.
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall"
 Nelson Mandela
