Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor on the Passing of Ted Kennedy:
|August 26, 2009
I will miss Ted Kennedy’s compassion, courage, and friendship. His 47 years spent fighting to lift families out of poverty is reflected as much in the south as in his home state. Behind this lion’s battle cry was an uncanny ability to reach across the aisle and find compromise. As a result, our children today receive a better education, the sick and elderly receive better health care and minorities have better opportunities for success. He will be missed by all.
