We have been in South Africa for the better part of the last two weeks and are fortunate to be here on Nelson Mandela Day. It marks a fitting end to the trip with the reminder to take action to help change the world for the better and build a global movement for good. Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere. “Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day.”
Nelson Mandela Day is our time to recognize his legacy of service to humanity in the fields of conflict resolution, race relations, the promotion and protection of human rights, reconciliation, gender equality, the rights of children and other vulnerable groups, and the upliftment of poor and underdeveloped communities. It acknowledges his contribution to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world.
