There’s not a lot more for me to say – in at least two pervious blogs (look them up if you will) I spoke my piece about this great American.
When Lincoln died, Stanton said “Now he belongs to the ages” or perhaps he said “Now he belongs to the angels,” either way expresses both the depth and the profound greatness of the loss.
So it is with John McCain, a patriot, a hero and a good man. He belongs to us all to remember and to hold up to future generations as an example of what it means to have a “life worth living.” .
When the news came of his death I instantly thought of Shakespeare who said so many things better than anyone.
I had used Shakespeare’s line once before in a blog I wrote last September which was entitled “The Coward vs. the Hero.”
“A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once.”
Go in peace, John McCain.
