“For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.”The Liberal Lion sleeps tonight. RIP, Sen. Kennedy.
There will be no moment of silence in the cantina. He was our lion; we will roar in his name.
Keep his dream alive:
This is the cause of my life. It is a key reason that I defied my illness last summer to speak at the Democratic convention in Denver—to support Barack Obama, but also to make sure, as I said, "that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American…will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not just a privilege." For four decades I have carried this cause—from the floor of the United States Senate to every part of this country. It has never been merely a question of policy; it goes to the heart of my belief in a just society.Roar.
