I lived in Massachusetts for two years. In that time, I had the honor of being served in the Senate by one of the most progressive Senators in Congress. In spite of coming from a family of tremendous wealth, Ted Kennedy's support was always with ordinary people who didn't always know how they were going to pay their bills. In spite f being older, from an earlier generation, he was always singular in his ability to look to the future in a way that is usually reserved for young people.
If you haven't yet read it, I think the best way to honor this man is to read the article he wrote for Newsweek not too long ago.
This man has been fighting so hard for us to all receive the kind of quality health care that he does. I hope we can continue his fight with renewed passion and hope even if he is no longer alive to see the fruits of his labor.
