Like many marginalized for whatever reason — be it race, gender, sexuality, so on — I have always had an affinity for those (politicians especially) who render support to those afflicted. I have to say the Kennedy clan’s long-standing commitment to those historically disenfranchised is a testament to why they are often regarded as our royalty. They deserve said title!
With the death of 77 year-old Sen. Edward M. Kennedy — the last of the trio of brothers who rocked our political worlds — after a year’s battle with brain cancer, it is time to pay homage and our respect!
May he rest in peace!
