The raging wildfire of change sweeping the Middle East for more than a decade was set by the self-immolation of a twenty-six year-old Tunisian fruit seller, Mohamed Bouazizi.
The demons that drove Bouazizi were not limited to his own merciless environment. Simultaneously, millions who had harbored similar thoughts, not yet quickened into action—most especially the millions of young people held in abject circumstances by political tyranny and economic malpractice—found the courage to put their own lives on the line for freedom.
Mohamed Bouazizi has bequeathed a world-changing example of the power, the contagion of courage.
What can you apply, in your own world, from his example?
How do his actions and example relate to the evolution of 21st century leadership?
