Muhammad Ali remembers Nelson Mandela


Statement Regarding Mr. Mandela’s Passing

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Mandela. His was a life filled  with purpose and hope; hope for himself, his country and the world. He inspired others to reach for what appeared to be impossible and moved  them to break through the barriers that held them hostage mentally, physically, socially and economically. He made us realize, we are our  brother’s keeper and that our brothers come in all colors. What I will remember most about Mr.Mandela is that he was a man whose  heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and  economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge. He  taught us forgiveness on a grand scale. His was a spirit born free, destined to soar above the rainbows. Today his spirit is soaring through the heavens.  He is now forever free.

 —Muhammad Ali
