Vaclav Havel, Tadeusz Mazowiecki, Srdjan Popovic and Nelson Mandela have passed. I have had the opportunity to meet my heroes, to learn and adopt from these giants.

Mandela Embraced the Power of Sports for Resistance & Unity

Mandela understood the power of sport to provide dignity & hope in the face of state-sponsored oppression, to undermine discrimination with resistance & to heal & help unite a society that the racial segregation of apartheid had brutally divided.

The Passing of a Great Hero

Ambassador Muhamed & Susan Sacirbey along with the World will mourn the death & celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela’s legacy from Father of the modern South Africa to freedom fighter who reconciled with old enemies.
