My heart goes out to all the people of Thailand. Two days ago, Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-reigning monarch, passed away at the age of eighty-eight. His reign over Thailand lasted seventy years.
I’ve spent much time in that wonderful country, and I’ve always been
amazed at how the king was loved and revered. King Bhumibol Adulyadej was a man of peace and dignity and
grace. He dedicated his life to improving the lives of all people of Thailand.
He will be sorely missed by many across the globe.
