Earlier today leaders past and present from around the world joined together to celebrate the life of Madeleine Albright. 

While Secretary Albright may have been small in stature, she was a titan in American history; she was one of a kind, a first of a kind, a mentor, a natural leader, as well as a mother and grandmother. Her brilliance and sharp wit made her a formidable presence on the world stage, and her story inspired women and girls all across the globe. 

Today was a wonderful celebration of her life. My thoughts are with Secretary Albright’s family as our nation remembers her life and her great legacy.
