Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy
I make it a point to keep controversial issues off my blog. I try to keep my personal views on religion/spirituality minimal. During the presidential election it was hard for me to not put up a "support" blinkie. I am pretty passionate about some things...but I also believe that there is a time and a place for everything. When I go to stamp blogs I go for a source of inspiration. I go for a break from my everyday life. And I try to give the same on my blog.
Initially, I was going to use a picture of beach chairs...or sunflowers...or fall leaves for this challenge. But I have been so moved by the life and death of our dedicated Senator, that I wanted to pay a tribute to Teddy. After all I am a lifelong Massachusetts resident. I am an Irish-American. I am a democrat. I am an American.
Ted Kennedy, like all humans, was not perfect. But he dedicated his life to the people of Massachusetts and the USA. I thank him for that.
I would appreciate that the comments section of this post not turn into a political debate. All inappropriate comments will be deleted. Remember what mama taught you: If you can't say anything nice than don't say anything at all.
In this great country we are each allowed to have our own opinions, views, feelings. Please respect mine and respect that this is MY blog.
Rest in Peace, Senator.
