A Message From Robert Prince, COMTO National Chair, on the Passing of Nelson Mandela
The Conference Of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) join the entire world community in celebrating the brilliant life and countless contributions of The Honorable Nelson Mandela. There are individuals that are called to live a life sacrifice in order to facilitate the greater good for the most people. President Mandela was certainly one of those individuals. A visionary leader, he epitomized strength and wisdom. His lifelong sacrifices served to better the plight of mankind across the globe. We are inspired by his lifelong commitment to improve the lot of the oppressed and under-represented. Today with his legacy as our compass, we rededicate our collective organizational efforts to continue leveling the playing field in this Nation. President Mandela, you will remain in our hearts forever. We thank you and may you rest in peace.
