Rest in Peace, Mr. Senator

Teddy Kennedy passed away today.  Though I did not always agree with his politics, I most certainly appreciated his passion, wit, and devotion to serving this great nation I call home.  He reached out to people across the country, and more importantly, across the aisle, to create legislation that he hoped would benefit all Americans.

In his own words, what I believe made him a fine man and servant of our nation:

“For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”

“I hope for an America where neither ‘fundamentalist’ nor ‘humanist’ will be a dirty word, but a fair description of the different ways in which people of good will look at life and into their own souls.”

Thank you and rest in peace.

    Ted Kennedy was a man who, having learned many a hard lesson, weathered many a storm, politically and privately, and endured many a loss, still stood true to his beliefs. He believed to the very end. That was the promise he made early in his life and the promise that he kept.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Senator.
