Foto Friday – Honoring Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

2013-12-06 09.40.30“A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.”
― Nelson Mandela


Villanova University prepares students to become ethical leaders who create positive change everywhere life takes them. The life of Nelson Mandela, who passed away yesterday at the age of 95, reminds us of the station and responsibility we have as Villanovans to ignite change.

    Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. May his great soul lead our posterity to its deserved greatness, i am glad to have lived in the same time as Mr. Nelson Mandela, I am just glad.
