Lennox’s statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela

December 5, 2013

I’m very saddened today to hear of the passing of one of my lifelong heroes, President Nelson Mandela. He lived a life of example through his dedication, commitment and unwavering love, not only for his brothers and sisters in South Africa, but for the entire human race.

He will forever remain THE blueprint of strength, grace and dignity, in both, the face of oppression and the privilege of power. I have very rarely, if ever, witnessed strength and compassion on his level. His legacy will continue to help shape the world for many generations to come.

I am truly grateful for my time with him and for his time in this world. Strength and prayers to his family and the people of South Africa. May he forever rest in paradise. Bless!
