That was terrific. When it was announced that John McCain had decided to stop any treatment he was receiving for his brain cancer, I felt obligated to send him a note via his US Senate website to express my appreciation for everything he’s done. It’s easy to take shots at what anyone might point out as his failings, but there isn’t anything anyone could say that John McCain hadn’t already acknowledged himself.
It’s funny - his farewell statement makes me think of Ted Kennedy! Their mutual belief in the goodness and the greatness of America were very similar. What an example that John McCain set for other public servants. I miss him already.
