Benazir Bhutto, Leader and Patriot

Today the world extends its condolences to the Pakistani people for their loss. Benazir Bhutto gave her life to her country, opposing violence and extremism, bravely standing up for democracy.

Today I recalled the shock and grief of the years when we lost President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. to assassin’s bullets. You can kill a person, but you can’t kill an ideal. Benazir Bhutto will live in every person who fights for justice, every person who loves their country, every act of courage and sacrifice.

For a beautiful tribute to her life, see this from The Washington Post headlined on Buzzflash.
