In Memoriam Nelson Mandela

Today we are mourning not only the loss of a great man but also the loss of one of the world’s greatest leaders.

Nelson Mandela was a man of tremendous moral courage that  changed the course of history in his own country and made this world a better place. Nelson Mandela was a tireless freedom fighter,a man of vision who rejected violence and condemned all forms of racism.He stood for human rights and equality but his biggest legacy was his emphasis on reconciliation. The incredible work that he did during his lifetime will continue to be an inspiration for generations to come.

He will always be remembered as a man who struggled and pushed for a vision of a society where none are exploited or oppressed by others. He made us all understand that we can change this world by changing attitudes ,by changing perceptions.His life gives us the courage to push forward for development and progress towards ending hunger and poverty,violence against women and other scourges of humanity.
