Senator Burr Statement on the Passing of Nelson Mandela

Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement in reaction to the passing of Nelson Mandela:

"Nelson Mandela's compassion and humility in the face of overwhelming adversity remains an inspiration. The people of South Africa will forever be in debt for his role in ending apartheid, and the rest of the world inspired by his leading a divided nation into a new, prosperous era. Today, we all mourn his passing, but take comfort in the enduring lessons of his life that will live forever."
