If you could have lunch with a famous person (living or dead), who would it be and why?
Nelson Mandela – I was in college when he was released and I am fascinated to this day how after all those years in prison he can exude such compassion and work so tirelessly for non-violent change in South Africa. The personal strength he displayed after his release reminds me that the human spirit is powerful and that we can overcome any obstacle if we believe in something greater than ourselves.
