~ By the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation ~ Our hearts are saddened by the passing of a giant of a man.... Nelson Mandela, who was a man of remarkable grace, intelligence, courage and strength. Our prayers are with his family and the beautiful people of South Africa. The grace and dignity in which he fought for freedom, democracy, One man One Vote, economic parity and equality for his people and country inspired the entire world and us deeply. We will forever remember his legacy and His life's journey and how he and our beloved friends in beautiful South Africa endured the long, brutal, violent, sad, racist, inhumane regime of apartheid and are yet striving to forgive, overcome, survive and move beyond its hate filled legacy today. Rest President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, "Madiba". You certainly have earned your crown. We are forever indebted to you for the un-selfish sacrifices you made that impact us all.
On behalf of the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation, Our ambassadors and family, Co Founder, Deborah Watts
