that's Ingrid Betancourt for me. just now BBC World aired an interview of the lady... i have deliberatly refrained from putting any adjective before her since my lexicon contains none that can describe her.
apart from what the entire world knows about her, i was stumped by what i heard at the end, when the channel asked her how her six-an-a-half years in captivity has changed her...she replied, "I was always a fragile woman. the difference is that now i know that i am fragile and i take care."
my silent salute to this lady.
