President Barack Hussein Obama Eulogizes President Nelson Madiba Mandela In South Africa

President Obama Eulogy For President Nelson Madiba Mandela.

 

Published on Dec 10, 2013

President Obama’s first political cause was the fight against apartheid as a student at Occidental College. Hear how Mandela’s life shaped the President of the United States.

 

More than 90 world leaders join tens of thousands of South Africans in saying farewell to Nelson Mandela.

 

It is hard to eulogize any man – to capture in words not just the facts and the dates that make a life, but the essential truth of a person – their private joys and sorrows; the quiet moments and unique qualities that illuminate someone’s soul. How much harder to do so for a giant of history, who moved a nation toward justice, and in the process moved billions around the world.

 

Born during World War I, far from the corridors of power, a boy raised herding cattle and tutored by elders of his Thembu tribe – Madiba would emerge as the last great liberator of the 20th century. Like Gandhi, he would lead a resistance movement – a movement that at its start held little prospect of success.

 

Like King, he would give potent voice to the claims of the oppressed, and the moral necessity of racial justice. He would endure a brutal imprisonment that began in the time of Kennedy and Khrushchev, and reached the final days of the Cold War.

 

Emerging from prison, without force of arms, he would – like Lincoln – hold his country together when it threatened to break apart.

 

Like America’s founding fathers, he would erect a constitutional order to preserve freedom for future generations – a commitment to democracy and rule of law ratified not only by his election, but by his willingness to step down from power.
