Death of an Immortal

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.

Her memory for a blessing.
