This thankful Thursday we would like to offer our thanks to those who have devoted their lives to trying to make the world a better place. The way we would like to do this is to have a purr in for Senator Ted Kennedy who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. The prognosis for this diagnosis is poor so as he fights this battle, I am sure he can use all our good thoughts and prayers.
It is interesting that Senator Kennedy is a man who might be seen as being overshadowed by his brothers. He was the youngest and is the only one surviving. History will never forget John Kennedy and certainly Bobby Kennedy made his mark on a nation, despite not living to see an election. Ted Kennedy never grabbed our attention in that way, yet here he is nearly 40 years later serving in the Senate.
Consider that Senator Kennedy is everything the new Conservatives have tried to get voters to hate. He is wealthy, education and above all a man who believes government should assist those who work for their dinner. Corporations couldn’t fight him so they have tried to bring him down.
I am thankful that our nation has had men like this serving it for over 200 hundred years. Let’s purr for Kennedy’s health and purr that our nation will have more men and women like this in the years to come. The Kennedy’s have exemplified that running our government is a service, not a place for self glory. In fact, I am so inspired perhaps I will rethink my bid for presidency as I believe I do it because I feel a need to be worshipped…
