Kennedy Speech at the DNC Convention

Teddy is sick, but he is not giving up. The Irish in him will just not let him go away quietly and I applaud his stubbornness. Brain cancer may have tried to silence his message but his fortitude alone pushed him beyond it. Tonight he gave a speech at the DNC convention that most people in his state of health would never have even thought of doing. If you wonder why Ted Kennedy had to do this speech then you have no clue as to what it means to be a true public servant. It isn’t the money, it isn’t the press, its just caring about your fellow man and trying to make their lives just that much better. Love him or hate him, Teddy Kennedy has been a staunch supporter for those less fortunate in America that don’t even have one home to claim.

I’ve known friends that have gone through cancer treatment and this speech before the convention of Democrats in Colorado was not just a showing up appearance. This was one last hope and plea for America to take the higher road that his brothers dreamed of and gave one generation the possibility of being a better people. That dream is not dead. It is alive and well in the campaign of Barack Obama and that is the only reason Teddy Kennedy gave this speech at the DNC convention in Boulder.

Great speech Senator Kennedy. My heart felt prayers are with you during your illness. I wish and hope that your situation was different. Defenders of the little people like yours truly are few and far between in the Congress.
