Aug. 26, 2009
May God finally give peace to his troubled soul. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
I would like for this thread to focus on condolences and the good works Senator Kennedy did in his life and not the more notorious acts like Chappaquiddick.
DAMN! I hate to see/hear this, but the last time I saw him on tv, he was horribly frail, and I knew it wasn't going to be much longer. May he rest in peace.
just saw this
sort of strange...all but one of the 1st generation of Kennedy kids now gone....Eunice and Ted under two weeks apart...Jean Kennedy Smith the only one left.
i couldn't stand Ted Kennedy, but he leaves a massive void.
We all knew it was coming but I still find it terribly sad. It's the end of an era and a legacy foreshortened.
RIP Mister Kennedy
Ted Kennedy was a mirror to us all, showing us both the tragedy of human weakness and the greatness of human aspiration.
this is the first that i've heard of his death. thank you for posting it, njqt. RIP edward kennedy.
Expected but still a shock.
Sad to hear. I always felt some sympathy for the man, having to live up to the legacy of his brothers. May he rest in peace.
Sad for his family, of course...but his exit from the Senate was long overdue.
Our forebears fought and died to escape government by heredity, yet we seemed bound and determined to keep our feudal pasts alive. It's beyond ridiculous that sitting members of the chamber literally have to die before even the possibility of new blood becomes reality.
Ted Kennedy was a champion of forward-thinking causes when many others were stuck in their own intertia--integration, health care reform, women's liberties. I hope that they eventually honor him with something named in his memory.
vio con dios................
RIP. Some liked the man some didn't. We all knew it was coming. My he now be with his brothers.
Damn, RIP Teddy.
" For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."
• Senator Edward Moore Kennedy addressing Democratic National Convention, August 1980.
An era is gone.
Anyone who gets to 77 should be considered lucky but of course its sad when anyone dies...
Couldn't have said it any better. RIP, Ted.
