Rest in Peace Senator and thank you authoring bills and standing up for the elderly and the mentally ill when other members were blind to their importance.

Its so sad... I hope his agenda on reforming healthcare gets some attention. He gave us over 40 years of his life, and I hope Congress realizes it.

RIP Senator Kennedy.

End of an era, for sure. Kind of embodied both the best and the worst of the Kennedy family/legacy, no?

So sad,

Kira
