More Madeleine!

Yesterday I shared with you part of an an interview given by Madeleine Albright to Megan Gambino.  The article was about Madeleine’s pins which are on display at the Smithonian Castle through June.  I’d like to share a bit more of that interview.  This excerpt is so endearing:

Gambino:  I know that your pins range from antiques to dime-store baubles. If you had to pick a favorite, which would it be, and why?
Albright:  My favorite is truly something that doesn’t fit into either of those categories. It is a heart that my daughter made for me that I will always wear on Valentine’s Day (except this Valentine’s, because it is in the museum). I wear it, and people ask me where I got it. I say, well, my daughter made it. They always ask, “How old is your daughter?” Until my daughter finally said, “Mom, you have got to tell people that I made it when I was five years old.” This Valentine’s Day, my granddaughter made me a pin of two, little hearts because she knew that her mother’s heart was in the exhibit. “This is a replacement heart,” she said.
