This week my school downed the timetable and had a week focused on Equality. There was discussion in the classrooms about rights and responsibilities and about diversity. Which made it an interesting week for Nelson Mandela to die.
It has crossed my mind that it might be a good idea to imprison all politicians for 27 years before they can take charge of a nation. It certainly changed the life of Mandela dramatically from a person of hatred to forgiveness. I hope there are many more world leaders like him to come.
On a totally unrelated subject Christmas approaches and therefore so do my deadlines, however the Uni continue to plug us with information until we're practically comatose, and even if it is interesting (see this link for the important work being done to save the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/) I feel my time could have been better spent this week.
Oh well it's gone 8pm on a Friday night in December so I'm going to do something unrelated to work. I hope you are too.
Have a happy weekend!
