Mike Toomey Texas Lobbyist News: Governor Perry’s Statement on Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela’s courageous willingness to suffer and work for racial equality inspired the world and brought issues of equality and justice into a global conversation. We mourn his passing, remember his amazing leadership, and are committed to live according to his example. As the world grieves the passing of Nelson Mandela, Governor Rick Perry of Texas issued a statement:
“Through his valiant struggle against the injustices of apartheid, Nelson Mandela became a symbol of what one person can do to change the world. His life and legacy will remain an inspiration to people everywhere who believe in the power of freedom to create stronger nations, and forge a better world for future generations. Today, the prayers of Texans are with Mandela’s family, his friends, and the people of South Africa.”
