Senator Ted Kennedy - February 22, 1932 – August 25, 2009

Today I will refrain from Steunenberg related history and instead join those of all political affiliations to honor the history and service of Senator Kennedy. I didn't always agree with every position the Senator took and, like all of us, he was an imperfect human being and made mistakes. Being a Senator was his destiny, to be president was not...and fortunately he was around long enough to accomplish much more than his brothers ever had an opportunity to do.

"The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."
--Ted Kennedy

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
-Robert Frost from Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

I think I'm still digesting what a world without Ted Kennedy is...thanks for posting Frost's words, John.
