Madeline Albright, R.I.P.

On Wednesday, 23 March, Madeline Albright passed away.  As the first female U.S. Secretary of State, she was, at the time, the highest ranking woman in government in American history.

She did not suffer fools and was well respected internationally, especially in Czechland as she was born in Czechoslovakia and could speak Czech.

Following the end of the Cold War, she was a leading voice in expanding NATO to Central Europe.  In 2012 she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and in 2018 she received the Czech Medal of Merit Award for Diplomacy.

Here are a few short clips I found on YouTube that talks about her legacy.



I didn't know the story behind her pins.  I found it to be pretty fascinating.


Never one to slow down, even last month she was sharing her opinion on Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

Я за Україну. Я за Україною. Слава Україні  Stojím za Ukrajinou!  I stand with Ukraine. 🇺🇦
