There have been many things said about Senator Kennedy over the last few days. I really feel the best can be said by his family. Family Statement"
“Edward M. Kennedy—the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply—died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port. We’ve lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever. We thank everyone who gave him care and support over this last year, and everyone who stood with him for so many years in his tireless march for progress toward justice, fairness and opportunity for all. He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it. He always believed that our best days were still ahead, but it’s hard to imagine any of them without him.”
The definition of a hero is: anyone who finds the strength to overcome extreme conditions. Senator Kennedy has had a very public life so we know he has overcome odds most couldn't dream of.
Senator Kennedy left many families with hope when they were hopeless. When families felt no one was listening Senator Kennedy was. Senator Kennedy was definitely a can do man and was certain that he could help other families from suffering while he himself was fighting cancer. I am always amazed when I see someone battle to beat cancer and still wrestle with the family's needs.
The last labor bill that Senator Kennedy introduced was the Protecting America’s Workers Act, although I am delighted and very emotional about this bill I don't want to make the main focus of this tribute to the PAWA just point out that with all his own distress he still managed to honor our loved ones and fight for the families right to a fair and transparent investigation. We are grateful for Senator Kennedy's efforts and admire his strength.
Our Hearts go out to Senator Kennedy's family and we hope you find the stenth and support to get through this tough time.
Rest in Peace Senator Edward Monroe Kennedy!
We know Senator Kennedy loved politics and all it involves, so although this is not normal for a loss, I think he may haved liked this one.
