When a great statesman dies, it seems the world stands still. His accomplishments and the team he worked with accomplished what seemed impossible. He said in his own words ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’ Nelson Mandela. But my eyes turn towards his private life. I started searching some images and this one struck me, he is having a laugh about something with his wife, Graca Machel. All I could think of is this is what love looks like. They were a close couple, sharing jokes publicly.
That closeness is precious, a great lesson for all couples regardless of past differences, true love can overcome many challenges.
