Moulton Statement on the Passing of Madeleine Albright

Salem, Mass.— Following the passing of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Congressman Seth Moulton released the following statement:

Madeleine Albright was a great American.

Few people have done more to serve our country, yet she was also tireless in her retirement, investing in the next generation as a teacher, mentor, and friend. She will be missed, not only for her history-making, public moments, but also in the quiet times, in the classroom or in late-night consultations, guiding the next generation of diplomats. 

“I have the fondest memories of sitting around her living room with titans of foreign policy and young amateurs like myself during my first years in Congress. Every time I called her for advice, she would take more time than I ever imagined, and then ask when I would call next.

“Committed to the future of American ideals around the globe, Secretary Albright saw American leadership as indispensable. That couldn’t be more true today. Throughout her career, she confronted the Soviets that drove her family from Prague when she was a child. Today, as a new Russian tyrant continues to threaten freedom and democracy, we must continue to heed her call for assertive multilateralism, with a full understanding of the sacrifice required to secure our freedoms.
