It may be a far cry from forklifts, but with three ex-South Africans on the Forkliftaction.com team, it seems appropriate to mark the passing of one of the greatest leaders of our time, Nelson Mandela.
Like readers around the world, we were moved by the memorial service in Soweto this week - and especially by the inspirational message from US president Barak Obama.
Even though he had not held office for many years, Mandela left a huge legacy and one which Obama rekindled with his amazing speech.
This week was indeed a time for reflection and one in which we are all called upon to make a difference - no matter how small.
