RIP Mr. Mandela. As President Obama observed today, “He no longer belongs to us- he belongs to the ages… We will not likely see the likes of Nelson Mandela again. So it falls to us as best we can to forward the example that he set: to make decisions guided not by hate, but by love; to never discount the difference that one person can make; to strive for a future that is worthy of his sacrifice.”

The world is filled with too many ugly, or worse, bland spaces. But if you look closely, there are some beautiful places. Also, you need a biscuit. Definitely a biscuit.
