I was devastated last night when the news of Senator Ted Kennedy’s death was announced. I knew he was very ill. I knew he did not have much time left, especially after he did not attend his sister’s funeral two weeks ago. Still, it was heartbreaking to hear that he passed away late last night.
Thank you Teddy for all that you have done for this country. You have dedicated your entire life to public service to improve the lives of others. You fought for the young, the old, the sick, the poor. You fought for those with disabilities. You fought for equal rights for all.
Thank you for your fight to provide health care for all. It is my hope as it was yours that very soon every American will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege.
My deepest sympathies go out to your family and friends. Rest in peace Teddy. Say hello to Jack, Bobby, and John...
