One of the most exciting events of my presidency was when Nelson Mandela made his visit to Washington, D.C. I could not get over his strength, his warmth, and his down-to-earth personality.

Nelson Mandela's worldwide leadership since his release from prison in 1990 has inspired millions around the world, including, of course, Barbara and me and the rest of the Bush family.

With respect and admiration for that distinguished man of liberty, Nelson Mandela.
