How many times in a lifetime, if you are not a headlines politician (and even then…), do you get the honor of spending over one hour in one small room with a TRUE Stateswoman or Statesman? How many times can you say you saw and talked to someone and are left almost speechless so impressed you were?

Today, for us, was the day that WE did.

Madam Secretary Madeleine K. Albright, it was more than an honor to meet you today: it was a life-changing moment. You inspired us, your knowledge and wisdom enriched us, you made us laugh. We are better people tonight! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Madam Secretary. And please come back to the College of Europe, Natolin.
