Remembrance of Madeleine Albright
Madeleine Albright was one of the people whose very existence provided an assurance of decency, competence, and commitment in a fractured world. As an immigrant, her gratitude to America combined with her service to the principles of freedom and her conviction that the malign events of 20th-century history not be repeated.
She was a distinguished public servant and a thoughtful and respected analyst of world affairs. She carried out a humanitarian purpose with a delightful sense of humor. She was a treasured friend.
Madeleine has left us at a time when the world witnesses new challenges to democracy and freedom. Her memory will remain to recall us to our duty.
