|Senator Edward M. Kennedy, an
|American Great Defender of the
|Voiceless, Succumbs to Brain
Senator Edward M. Kennedy, even when he
was in the late evening of his life, was a manifestation of the essence of the
voice of all citizens, principally of those on the margin of society, replete
with the sense of hope he indefatigably sought to engender, as his plenitude of
dutiful rare achievements during his long United Statesí senate career
"The past is not dead and burned; in fact, it is not
even past," wrote William Faulkner.
Even long after Senator Kennedy goes to his grave,
alternately his last refuge, he will always be remembered as someone who
rightly, meritoriously secured his place in the pantheon of humankindís great
defenders of the voiceless.
