Colin Powell is the most inspiring public leader I have known in my life. He is true to his core. Never loses step of who he is first - a family man with a family who blesses him every day. God bless you forever, Sir. So glad to have met you in person!

A misspelling of the artist's name, from an official NPG blog no less? Please make sure that is fixed ASAP.
