US Secretary of State John Kerry created quite an impression during his 12-hour trip to Bangladesh.
In addition to meeting with the prime minister and BNP chairperson, he also found the time to pay respect to the Father of the Nation at the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum, penning a graceful and heartfelt tribute in the museum's guest book.
In addition to the eloquence of his words, we could not help but notice that his penmanship (see picture above) matched the elegance of his sentiments.

He wrote: “What a tragedy to have such brilliant and courageous leadership stolen from the people of Bangladesh in such a moment of violence and cowardice. But, today Bangladesh is growing in the vision of Bangabandhu – and under the strong leadership of his daughter. The United States is proud to be a friend and strong supporter of the fulfillment of his vision. We look forward to growing and working together for peace and prosperity.
John F. Kerry”
