Edward M. Kennedy, 1932-2009

Written by Henry L. Chambers, Jr. on August 26th, 2009

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has died.  He had already been re-elected as a senator from Massachusetts before I was born.  For me, he has always been a lion of the Senate.  He made some terribltmpphpzuNr4we decisions and some brilliant decisions in both his personal and political lives.  He dealt with great tragedy and great joy both in public and in private.  He caused great happiness for many and caused great pain for some.  Nonetheless, words are indequate to express the gratitude that America should feel for what Ted Kennedy did for this country, for how he made us think about how to make our country more perfect and for how he pushed us to be better.  Lord knows he had his flaws, but I always liked and admired Ted Kennedy.  May he rest in peace.
