Today is another sad day in our world with the loss of Madiba. Nelson Mandela is a man who has shown that change is possible, that transitions can happen peacefully and that there is room for forgiveness. I did not agree with all his policies, but I respected this leader that I had hoped to have met, but was not possible. He hosted my Mother and has had ties to my family as President. He has been an icon and now may he finally rest. His job in South Africa has not been totally completed, but he took on the lion’s share of the work. We will continue that job. His sacrifices were not in vain. Thank you Madiba for your sacrifices you have made for our country and its entire people.
