A Sad Day for Women Everywhere...

A strong woman has been
taken from us much too soon.

Former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated Thursday at a political rally, two months after she returned from eight years of exile to attempt a political comeback, officials said.

Bhutto was shot at close range as she was leaving the rally in this garrison city south of Islamabad, aides said. Immediately after the shooting, a suicide bomber detonated explosives near Bhutto's car, killing at least 15 other people.

Bhutto was rushed to a hospital with extensive wounds to her torso, her supporters said. Shortly after she arrived at the hospital, an official came out of the building and told a crowd of supporters Bhutto was dead.
This just makes me very sad...

it is sad to say, but I'm surprised they didn't get to her the first time they tried. She must have been ready.

Tears will continue to fall, not only did we loose a strong woman we have lost a ray of hope.
