I join the 46th President of the United States of America: Joseph R. Biden Jr., First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, the Biden Administration, Former Presidents, staff members, the Republican and Democratic political community, family, friends, loved ones, colleagues, a nation, and all who mourn the loss of the 64th Secretary of the United States of America Madeleine Jana Korbel Albright (1937-2022). Albright was the former Secretary of State to the 42nd U.S. President Bill Clinton and the first woman to ever serve as a U.S. Secretary of State. She was known for her diplomacy. Amongst much more credentials and life-long achievements, Former Secretary Albright was a refugee who arrived with her family from Czechoslovakia at age 11 in November 1948. Her refuge and migration to America reveals the historic welcoming of refugees, migrants and the possibility of creating a future that is legacy building to America and the World. Madeline Albright and family eventually settled in Denver, Colorado. She served the Clinton administration successfully, and received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the 44th President of the United Stated of America, President Barack Hussein Obama.
I am profoundly grateful for your service and found encouragement within your example of leadership and dedication to nation. And it is upon a note of sadness that we must remember you through your passing. My thoughts of love and sympathies to all who mourn your loss. May God bless your soul, may you rest in peace. God Bless America.
