WMDT spoke to Dr. Tom Moyardi from Salisbury University on why Mandela's legacy has had such a broad reach.  Moyardi's wife is from South Africa, and he says he's spent time in the country and was impacted by Mandela's message.

"I think that really inspires us because it's so noble, it's so unusual in our modern political culture, we have all that infighting in Washington, and yet here's a man who did something incredibly amazing an noble, and I think it's inspiring to us," says Dr. Tom Moyardi of Salisbury University.
