One of my very favorite quotes is from Nelson Mandela, who once said that, “a good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.”
As people around the world mourn his passing this week, there is something we can all do to make a difference. “Hope” is a song for which Nelson Mandela personally wrote and recorded lyrics, that has been released by pop star Emin. The song was intended to celebrate 2014 World Peace Day, but was released to honor Mandela after his passing.
All proceeds from downloads of the song on iTunes will benefit the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, which strives to improve the way society treats children and youth, believing that all children should enjoy a life free of hunger, abuse, and exploitation.
In the song, Mandela says, “The generosity of the human spirit can overcome all adversity. Through compassion and caring, we can create hope.”
