Celebrating the Life of Nelson Mandela
Today the world celebrates the remarkable life of Nelson Mandela – his charismatic personality, his astonishing achievements, his sweeping and comprehensive vision, his relentless courage, unwavering integrity and enormous generosity.
From prisoner to president his inner strength, moral values, extraordinary will, commitment and humility allowed him as an activist, freedom fighter, unifier and nation builder to overcome the impossible. We should never forget not just what he achieved, but also how and why he achieved it.
He was the living embodiment of what it is to be a good human being, of what we all should be striving to become. Thank you Nelson Mandela - for showing us the way. We are deeply indebted to you. I, for one among millions, will never forget you.
