Quote of the Day: Obama at Mandela's Memorial Service

Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Around the world today, men and women are still imprisoned for their political beliefs; and are still persecuted for what they look like, or how they worship, or who they love...There are too many leaders who claim solidarity with Madiba’s struggle for freedom, but do not tolerate dissent from their own people. And there are too many of us who stand on the sidelines, comfortable in complacency or cynicism when our voices must be heard.
-- U.S. President Barack Obama, remarks at Nelson Mandela's memorial service in Johannesburg, South Africa, 12/10/13
