MANDELA - The Power of a Name

We hear Nelson Mandela called "Madiba" sometimes, but I was surprised to learn that he has had several names throughout his life.  Fitting, as he's lived more life and lives than many of us could ever dream to succeed at.  I took this picture back in March while visiting the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.  It shows all of his names, their meanings and who gave them to him.  Reading it gave me chills.  Sometimes a name is everything.
