I watched the funeral of Ted Kennedy today, it was a very moving, beautiful service. President Obama made a wonderful speech. He really is a great orator. Sen Kennedy will be missed not only by those who knew him personally, but by the many who benefited from all the programs he brought to people who had no one to look out for them: the poor, the sick, children, all kinds of people. Perhaps that is why God in His infinite wisdom never let him become President; he accomplished so much as a Senator, he changed the world! I can only hope and pray that someone, somewhere, in the position to do so, will follow in his footsteps and be a champion for the poor, and others who need a champion to fight for them.
