memoriam


There are not enough brave leaders in the world. Now there is one less. In a world where women are considered property and of little consequence, where men torture and kill in the name of God, this woman was a shining light and example of what leadership should be. I thought a couple of weeks ago, about how brave it was to return and resume her efforts to bring freedom to all her countrymen and women. Here is what happens when women of strength and perseverance become powerful in places where faith is another word for fear.

Sorry, I don't usually make too many political statements on the blog but this is just too sad to remain quiet about. I have followed Ms Bhutto's career with great interest for a long time. It was good to see her smiling face and grace again, for however brief a time.

I totally agree Dee. It's so very sad. Sad for that country and for all those whose eyes are veiled and refuse to see.

Amen! I was just stunned when I heard about her assassination. She has been an example for so long. May God have mercy on us.

Oh, I am so happy to see this post. I was so saddened by the loss of this beautiful and brave woman. My dh says that she was involved in corruption, but how many politicians today don't have to have some degree of under the table dealings to survive. Thank you for the tribute to her.

I am so with you on this Dee, and my heart sank when I heard the bad news. Disgusting. Misery will no doubt follow.

This was such a tragedy! I couldn't agree with you more, Dee!

Her 19 year old son seems ready (and willing) to pick up her burden. What an incredible legacy.
