The Lion Is Gone

But he will remain in our hearts and in our endeavors to make our society a good society for years to come.

“Neither years of age nor years of political combat, nor his illness, diminished the idealism and energy of this talented, imaginative, and intelligent man. And that is the kind of Senator Ted Kennedy was. Throughout his career, Senator Kennedy believed in a simple premise: that our society’s greatness lies in its ability and willingness to provide for its less fortunate members. Whether striving to increase the minimum wage, ensuring that all children have medical insurance, or securing better access to higher education, Senator Kennedy always showed that he cares deeply for those whose needs exceed their political clout. Unbowed by personal setbacks or by the terrible sorrows that have fallen upon his family, his spirit continued to soar, and he continued to work as hard as ever to make his dreams a reality.”

Sen. Robert Byrd

This is how I will remember the Lion.

Rest In Peace, dear Lion, the blessings of our country will always be with you.

My son Michael recalls the following poem by A. E. Housman.
