Sadat of Egypt died in the pursuit of peace

My schedule is full, but I ran across this photo that I thought I would share. Anwar El Sadat was the third president of Egypt in modern times. He served from 1970 until his assassination October 6, 1981. Sadat made peace with Israel on March 26, 1979.

This photo shows the beautiful monument to Sadat that stands across the street from the viewing stands where he was assassinated.
