Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela turned his prison into hope by creating a rooftop garden to work under the supervision of the prison guards. He had enough produce, even in prison, he supplied food for others who were hungry outside the prison. Let his kindness and perseverance be an example for you in the coming school year.
