Sure, South Africa has problems and many challenges, but her true hope lies within these young people. And on this day, today, they showed me the best that they had and I was impressed. Truth be told, young people in the states could learn a thing or two about being hopeful for one's future in the face of adversity, and no matter what one's circumstances, doing something about it.
This is the inspiring story of so many that I met today. Many, who looked me in the eyes and with all sincerity made clear their commitment to rise to their own level of human potential. For South Africa, and for our world over.
