EDWARD "TEDDY" M. KENNEDY 1932 - 2009


It does not matter if you are democrat or republican, male or female, black, young or old, white or somewhere in between, if you were not born with a silver spoon in your mouth you owe a debt of gratitude to Ted Kennedy.

Since he first stepped foot on the Senate floor in November 1962 he fought tirelessly to give a voice to those who were not heard. A dedicated supporter of the middle and under class, his causes were American causes – education and head start, health care, voter’s rights, equality for women, ethnic minorities and the disabled, worker’s rights, (including a fair minimum wage), and the environment and nuclear proliferation.

Thank you Teddy

Ted has been a person I have looked up for most of my life even when he erred as all humans do he pulled himself up and kept on. His accomplishments are MANY and he shall never be forgotten - we must carry on for him. That is our destiny.
