The THIMUN Foundation is saddened to learn of the death of Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General from 1997 to 2006.  He was an inspiration to all of us, for his decency and his grace in difficult times, and his desire to seek solutions to intractable problems. He was also an inspiration to generations of student delegates.  We have not forgotten his visit to the 34th THIMUN Conference in The Hague, on February 1st 2002, when he made the closing address to a theatre packed with enthusiastic delegates and directors. He received a standing ovation which continued for several minutes.  It was an unforgettable moment for all present.

We would like to offer our condolences to his family.
