Kit: Where I Came From, Blue Heart Scraps


Font: Title & Journal: Aubrey; Book Quote: Times New Roman


Quote reads:“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.” ― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela


Journal reads: Visiting the Human Rights Museum for the first time was truly one that was not expected.  I was deeply moved with the Nelson Mandela display.  I had no idea of the scope of the sacrifice he made for his people.  This quote that he wrote in his book , Long Walk to Freedom is one that will always stay in my heart.
