Nelson Mandela and forgiveness from Discovery News

It turns out that I was not finished with the late Nelson Mandela after A great song for a great man.  Discovery News has a science-related item about the man and the lessons he offers for us in Nelson Mandela and the Science of Forgiveness.

With the passing of Nelson Mandela, the world loses not only an international icon of peace and reconciliation, but also someone with the unique ability to truly forgive. Casting aside his anger and resentment to those who held him imprisoned for 27 years, he went on to achieve greatness and influence the lives of millions of people. Trace looks at the science behind this power of forgiveness.
Stay tuned for more short entries like this until Thursday.  As I quoted Nablopomo in Nablopomo for December: MORE/LESS:
We know that NaBloPoMo runs straight through that busy time period from Christmas to New Years.  Be easy on yourself and keep it simple.  Feel free to do photo posts, or tell us your favourite family recipe.  And yes, it's okay to schedule a post in advance.
I'm just doing more with less.
