In Memorandum

Senator Kennedy's former campaign website has assembled a collection of photos from his life, and many of his greatest speeches from his long career.  Today is a sad day for all Americans.  I wish I could write something meaningful and inspiring, but words fail.

It's so remarkable to see photos of the young Kennedy family.  They all look so young, so full of energy, so full of hope for their future.  This photograph looks so sharp, so fresh.  It could have happened yesterday.  You almost expect to turn a corner and find them there, standing on your front lawn.  Now at long last, all the boys are gone, and live goes on.  Words fail.
