The worldwide and history-making example set by Nelson Mandela’s leadership is a model seldom rivaled or surpassed in the annals of human history.

The Days of Wine and Wisdom

When I grew up on the west side of Detroit, not too many moons ago, I remember that no matter where you went or what you did, there were always people ready to share wisdom with you.

In heaping praises and accolades on great leaders of our time, we often fail to recognize the everyday people who help to make these leaders great.
