Ted Kennedy Is Dead: Camelot Weeps Again

Senator Ted Kennedy is dead and Ol’ Camelot takes another blow. Like the mythical, storybook Arthurian land of Camelot, tragedy has again struck a member of the royal Kennedy clan. Ted Kennedy is dead now and he has taken with him the aura and legacy of this legendary politcal family with him. He was the last of those political magnates to surface out of the Kennedy fold, he was a vocal, stern, and resilient senator. He helped pass many a helpful bill(civil rights legislation being a focal point for him), and championed many causes for people in America. Ted Kennedy showed he cared about the average man and woman; the average citizen of the United States. He will be missed.

Even with all the tragedy that occured during his life, and the life of members of his family, Ted Kennedy remained a steadfast, and effective senator. He refused to let the deaths of family members or events like “Chappaquiddick” stand in the way of a glorious political career. Like his brothers John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy, he was a force to be reckoned with during his many years as a politician and senator. But let us remember, even though we are faced with the fact that Ted Kennedy is dead, we will continue to feel him through the laws he helped pass. Yes, Ted Kennedy is dead, but this real American patriot will be remembered. This you can bet.
