1 Eye's Blog: 2013 - Remembering the "Best of Us" (Click Here).. As 2013 draws to an end; I cannot leave this year, without honoring the "Best of us" - Nelson Mandela. His life is an example to us; to not be diminished by the "burdened spirit" - that beats away at us; to succumb to the "status-quo". During my "car-haul" days, I remember reading Nelson Mandela's, "Long Walk to Freedom" - usually at days end; quite often falling asleep in my bunk, & awaking in the morning - with the "soft cover version" crumpled, underneath me. Nelson Mandela's story has many lessons.
