Undoubtedly this week the news channels will be filled with stories recounting the major events of 2009, so naturally I’m going to add to the deluge. For me the story that touched me most was the passing of Senator Kennedy. I am hard pressed to think of anyone around today who is such a part of the American fabric as Teddy was. So many of our high and low points over the last 50 years involved the Kennedy brothers, now that the last one has passed I certainly felt something that had kept me attached to my youth had been severed.
Unlike his brothers he was given the gift of living to an old age and he repaid that gift by dedicating his life to the improvement of his fellow man. Millions of people’s lives today are better off for the effort of Senator Kennedy Can anything better be said of a man after he’s gone?
Ok folks, what are the stories of 2009 that touched you most?
