This morning, while drinking my coffee, I was perusing the UCSB Arts and Lectures line-up for the 2018-19 season. UCSB treats our community to many thought provoking lectures. I have been fortunate to enjoy many of them. Joe Biden, Gloria Steinem, Madeline Albright and Jeffrey Toobin who is spoke so passionationately about the Supreme Court.
The one person I would have loved to heard speak is John McCain.
“Nothing in life is more liberating than to fight for a cause larger than yourself, something that encompasses you but is not defined by your existence alone.”
-Faith of My Fathers:A Family Memoir
Senator Chuck Schumer said it best.
"I am mourning, America is mourning, the world is mourning the loss of one of the truly great men of recent decades. You don’t meet many great men as you go through life, John McCain was one of them for his patriotism, for his strength, for his ability to speak truth to power and for him to do personal acts of kindness, quietly, over and over again. I knew him well, he was one of my closest friends in the Senate."
We will miss you John McCain.
