“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” – Madeleine Albright

Madame Secretary Madeleine Albright passed away Wednesday from her fight with cancer. She was the first woman to serve as Secretary of State during the Clinton Administration.

Her memoir, Madame Secretary, is a great read. May she rest in peace.
