Today's the day the world marks Mandela's remarkable achievements:
The day was unanimously approved in 2009 by the U.N. General Assembly. It was created to honor Mandela and inspire others to carry on his efforts to "take responsibility for making the world a better place, one small step at a time," according to a statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation Initiative.Seems like we're going to hail in a handbasket, what with all the crazy news stories of death and destruction in hot spots around the globe.
Still, every day we step forward in a positive way -- however small or seemingly insignificant -- we make a difference.
Make a difference today.
