"One can rarely say with absolute confidence that an individual altered the course of human history. Yet without a doubt, Nelson Mandela changed his nation - and our entire world - for the better. He inspired millions to rise above intolerance, push back against injustice, and strive for dignity and equality for all humankind. His passing will certainly be mourned, but his life and legacy will be celebrated and emulated for generations to come."
