Today is the first annual Mandela Day (http://www.mandeladay.com/). Nelson Mandela, one of my heroes, turns 91 today. He taught me and my fellow South Africans about humility, ubuntu, reconciliation, not having bitterness towards others, working together to make the future better, and how a wise man can change the spirit of a country.

Mandela Day celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an imprint. You can also follow @MandelaDay on Twitter.

In the spirit of Ubuntu, let’s make the world a better place, for everyone.
