7. being born in '81, I was too young to remember this when it actually happened.
Reading about it later, though, I thought about how brave she was, and how she was tragically killed so young. Imagine what she would be doing today had she lived, perhaps in Congress or as an ambassador, in any case I think she would be influential in our politics today. It's so sad her life was cut short at a very young age. May she rest in peace.
