Senator Ted Kennedy, died at age 77, after a long fight with brain cancer. The senator had been in his home state over a year, after being diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in May 2008.
Bigger than life, He is the last of the three giant musketeers of the Kennedy political dynasty to depart us. "Teddy" as known by his colleagues, friends, and the media was probably one of the most influential American liberal politicians to define the American political spectrum in the second half of the 20th century.
A champion of the voiceless, minorities, and the working class— Senator Kennedy was a friend and a Champion of the Latino community. Many within the political Latino leadership mourn his death today; as if he was another one of us.
Adiós Senador y Que Dios lo Recompense Por Todo Lo Que Hizo.
