Let Us Celebrate the Life of Nelson Mandela
We join the people of South Africa, Africa, and the world in mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela, who truly changed the world. He showed us that dignity can overcome oppression, courage can defeat cowardice, and generosity and forgiveness will trump vengeance.
During South Africa’s official period of mourning for Nelson Mandela, we are celebrating his life by sharing his thoughts and beliefs in his own words. Let us continue to take inspiration from a great man whose life celebrated the humanity in each one of us.
