“Nelson Mandela is a hero whose life will be an inspiration for generations far beyond his own. From his prison cell to his country’s highest office, Mr. Mandela never faltered in his determination to lift South Africa out from under the tyranny of apartheid. We honor his legacy by recommitting ourselves every day to the struggle for peace and reconciliation.”
