Drives me onwards
Courageous. Outstanding. A woman of her time. This woman inspires, leads and drives me onwards where others retreat. This woman gave her life, the ultimate sacrifice, to her cause. Amazing.

I remember Benazir Bhutto. In 1991 I saw and heard Benazir Bhutto speak of politics here in Toronto at a luncheon given with her as speaker. Afterwards at the Pakistani embassy I met her and was quite awestruck by her beauty. She looked like she was the Madonna of Islam. When I asked her how it felt to be the second lady to rule in Islam she asked me who was first and I said Razia Sultan.We both laughed as they people do at diplomatic receptions. But she differentiated between her and Razia saying she had been elected to which I agreed of course. Benazir had a haunting presence and a beauty that is rarely seen. I know she had ideals in the face of mankind that has despair. She wasexceptionally educated and cultured and we spoke of the poetry of Faiz Ahmed Faiz. Benazir still had much to give and was willing to serve to do so. May She Rest in Peace.
