“Even in the face of extreme adversity, [Mandela] has proven that with a noble cause and an eternal will, one person can change the tide of oppression, an entire country, and the world. Whether it was during his 27 years in prison or during his time as president of South Africa, he has demonstrated exceptional strength, supreme moral courage, and principled forgiveness. People all around the world suffering from oppression, hatred, and discrimination will forever be grateful for the incredible leadership of Nelson Mandela."
