Where there is hate, there is also love – they cannot exist separately …

nelsonLove. Hate. Tragedy. Success. Inspiration. Nelson Mandela’s A Long Walk to Freedom, showcases everything that there is to despise about the human race, and everything that there is to admire about humanity. Likewise, Invictus speaks to our determination and our inherent nature to strive for good. People, I believe, are both good and bad – inside of us, they both live … and they both battle … day in and day out, and eventually, one of them wins. I can only hope that for me, as for you, that like Mr. Mandela, that the good wins in the end.

Today’s post inspired by The Daily Prompt – Worldly Encounters. “The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?”
