I walked into my first class which was taught by Charles Goslin. He was a tidy looking older gentleman, wearing a tweed jacket and a neatly trimmed beard as he peered at us above his round little glasses. He spoke quietly but confidently and very matter of fact. I signed up for his class not knowing much about him.
Nelson Mandela International Day (July 18th), was declared in 2009 as a day to honor Mandela’s legacy, promote community service and to “take responsibility for making the world a better place, one small step at a time.” But this year the holiday seems to have even more meaning as it is the first birthday he has not lived to see.
