All of us who have been involved with the Vilakazi Foundation are heartbroken by the loss of Nelson Mandela. Like millions around the world, he was a guiding light to us.
Mandela's compass unfailingly pointed to justice. He was the very best of humanity. May we all honor his legacy by continuing to make the world a better, more equal place.
"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived," Mandela
said. "It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
