A tribute to Kofi Annan, from his family

On August 18, the world lost a leader and a statesman: Kofi Atta Annan. And we lost a brother, a husband, a father, a grandfather, and an uncle – a man of deep conviction who was as committed to instilling the values of fairness, integrity, kindness, and service in each of us, as he was to advocating for peace and human rights around the world. He was as present with each of us and the family as a whole, as he was with every crisis, every mission, and every intervention. No call, email, or text went unanswered. No personal crises unaddressed. No major family milestones or celebrations unattended, no matter what was happening in the world. So while we shared him with the world, we were never poorer for it. Today, buoyed and comforted by the outpouring of love and support we have received from around the world, we are richer for having shared him with you. Stubborn optimist that he was, he would want us all to look forward with hope, and keep striving to create a freer, fairer, more peaceful world. Daddy, may you rest in perfect peace knowing the depth of our love for you and gratitude for the tremendous role you played in each of our lives. Atta says, “Bye bye Grandpa, enjoy heaven!” The Annan Family]]>
