In Hope and Prayers for Edward M. Kennedy

Growing up in Massachusetts the Kennedys were always part of my reality. It was with emphatic resolve that I voted for them- all of them- time and time again. Three of the brothers were stolen from us- just one has survived. And his is a carrying-on of the Kennedy message of love and compassion and equality.

Not a perfect man- and yet a man who calls us to perfection. A loving man dedicated to the Beatitudes.

Let us pray for his recovery.

God bless you, Ted.
