The outline of famous Table Mountain above Cape Town….visible from Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years. He emerged able to forgive and build a nation.

A young boy from a township near Cape Town is highlighted today in honor of Nelson Mandela’s 93rd Birthday….we recognize and honor that to truly “see” and acknowledge each other is a simple act of kindness. Photo Diplomacy as practiced through Dog Meets World is a simple act of kindness for the world. A photo says I see you, you matter and we are much alike. It is tangible joy and a seed of peace. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Celebrate “Mandela Day” by showing kindness and compassion to all.
