Statement on Nelson Mandela
The world lost the greatest leader of our generation when former South African President, Nelson Mandela transitioned on December 5, 2013. He taught us patience, perseverance, fight, forgiveness and commitment. We followed his struggle for freedom in South Africa from the Free Nelson Mandela posters we hung on the wall of our college dormitory rooms to our participation in the demonstrations at the South African Embassy and throughout the United States. We watched with pride when he stepped out to freedom after 27 years of captivity looking regal and not expressing bitterness. We took notes from the lessons he taught us about reconciliation and nation building.
