We join the many voices expressing gratitude for General Colin Powell’s extraordinary contributions to the nation. It was our pleasure to work with him in various capacities, including on the board of the National Institute for Civil Discourse. Few Americans have more powerfully personified leadership that puts country ahead of party and that engages differences with dignity and respect. Never have those character traits been more needed than now. He will be missed. May we all renew our own commitment to serving the country Colin Powell so loved in the ways he exemplified.

– Tom Daschle and Christine Todd Whitman, Co-Chairs, National Institute for Civil Discourse
