The world mourns the loss of one of its great leaders, Nelson Mandela. Now is the time to celebrate his life and his achievements.
Throughout a life marred with suffering and persecution for his passion for others and their civil rights Mandela maintained an air of non-violent activism which elevated him to a position of global respect and prominence as a world leader. His shining example of “grace under pressure” afforded him the opportunity to influence other leaders in the goal of achieving peace.
FEW joins with the world in expressing its condolences to President Mandela’s family and the people of South Africa.
