Co-Founder and Co-Chair, NTI
Colleen and I are greatly saddened by the passing of George Shultz, one of our nation’s most valued public servants, an outstanding statesman and a dear friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife, Charlotte, and the entire Shultz family. Charlotte’s creativity, energy, and love of life brought George much joy and inspiration.
George accomplished more in 100 years than most of us could do if given 400 years. His important work to bring about a more peaceful and stable world continued until the end of his life and will leave a lasting legacy for years to come.
He had a profound impact on reducing nuclear dangers and prepared the groundwork for the end of the Cold War:
George’s friend Bishop William Swing wrote, “At the end of time, the author of life will return to this created and loved Earth and demand accountability for what we did to enhance or destroy it.” Every day, George Shultz worked to enhance God’s creation and preserve human life on our planet.
