This weekend the Freedom Center will honor two revolutionary freedom fighters, the late Nelson Mandela and Lech Walesa.
The former Polish President was leader of the non-violent Solidarity movement that ended the Communist regime in Poland in the late 1980s. Friday at a news conference he was asked whether the U.S. is doing enough to bring peace to the Ukraine.
Through an interpreter he said, it appears the U.S. is not willing to continue with it's leadership position, so it should establish the framework for a committee to help solve problems in that region of the world.
Though former South Africa President Nelson Mandela remains in a Pretoria, SA hospital, the world is celebrating his 95th birthday.
The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is marking the occasion by continuing its "Six Words for Mandela" campaign. Guests are invited to leave words of thanks and well wishes for the man known as "Madiba." The cards will eventually be sent to Mandela's family.
