Mary Morrissey Interviews Nelson Mandela(February 02, 2014)
Simi Valley, California (PRWEB) February 02, 2014
Mary Morrissey, in one of her recent podcast videos, discusses her last conversation with Nelson Mandela, noted civil rights leader. Mary Morrissey said that she was able to ask Mr. Mandela several questions that she had always wanted to ask the noted leader.
The simplest question Mary Morrissey had for Mr. Mandela was, How did you do it? Knowing the challenges faced by Mr. Mandela over his lifetime, including 27 years spent in prison at hard labor and becoming the president of South Africa, Mary Morrissey was curious to know how Mr. Mandela handled the obstacles and the victories in his path.
Upon being asked this question, Mr. Mandela noted that the man who went to prison never could have become president. He noted that his younger self was angry and violent, but over the first months of his imprisonment, one thought began to creep in: Maybe all is not lost.
Mr. Mandela said that he held on to that hope for many years. Through the years that followed, he began to realize that perhaps there was a larger purpose to his imprisonment: the ending of apartheid. Eventually, he began to write letters, and according to Mary Morrissey, The rest is history.
Mary Morrissey reminds her listeners that it is just as important to live in the moment as to plan for the future. By living in the moment, Nelson Mandela was able to bear the burden of prison and see his tribulations as part of a greater good.
