Ted Kennedy: The Lion Takes A Rest

Ted Kennedy died yesterday and I must say that I am sad. No he was not perfect, but he was consistent. Luckily for many, he did not become President but was allowed to work in the Senate, paving the way for the Voting Rights Act, Immigration Act of 1965 and the Anti-Apartheid Act which called for sanctions against South Africa, pressuring the country to end it’s racist regime. He symbolized what a Senator should be — a hard worker  for his constituents and the world community. He made his presence known and was involved in legislation that truly changed the face of the world. Ted Kennedy was one in a million and his leadership in the Senate will be truly missed.
