Simone Veil died this morning. She was one of my heroes, growing up. Still was.

She was the main force behind the legalisation of abortion in France, a Holocaust survivor, the first female President of the European Parliament, among other things.



I hope she gets into the Panthéon -- "aux grands hommes grandes femmes la patrie reconnaissante" and yes we are so very very grateful. I'll try to go to the funeral on Wednesday.
