And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
Nelson Mandela

DAAS joins the world in mourning the passing of South African President Nelson Mandela.  A great son of Africa, throughout his life Mandela stood for justice and peace in South Africa with grace and tenacity. Despite the enormous obstacles and crippling burden of apartheid, he envisioned a nation where all people had equal rights and freedom.

Madiba, you have charged us to never settle for a life that is less than the one we are capable of living.  We in DAAS will honor your legacy, your memory and continue your pursuit of freedom for all.
