R.I.P Nelson Mandela
A great Son of Africa passed away last night.
It was his time, but what he left us with is far greater than the loss of his leaving. We've sent condolences to the family and close friends we know; from us personally, from Great Plains and from our guests, agents and friends, some of whom may not be able to reach out and say just how important Madiba's life and philosophies were to us all.
He has advanced the spirit of this continent and if we are left with only one lesson from him, it would be to make things better, not worse, no matter what or who you touch. We all know how to do that.
