The Lion Has Passed


"We've lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever.
We thank everyone who gave him care and support over this last year, and everyone who stood with him for so many years in his tireless march for progress toward justice, fairness and opportunity for all."

Edward Kennedy
February 22, 1932 - August 25, 2009

I am so saddened to learn of this today.

Ted Kennedy is one of two politicians I've actually seen in real time. My mom took us to WA DC just before Watergate broke wide open and we saw him on the Senate floor.

Yes, a great loss.

Your nation has lost a great one - but I am sad for the family to have to deal with losing both Eunice and Ted so close together.
