Ted Kennedy Dies of Brain Cancer

Senator Ted Kennedy, the youngest of Kennedy brothers, has died this evening at the age of 77.

From ABC News:

Known as the “liberal lion of the Senate,” Kennedy championed health care reform, working wages and equal rights in his storied career. In August, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom — the nation’s highest civilian honor — by President Obama. His daughter, Kara Kennedy, accepted the award on his behalf.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, known as Ted or Teddy, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in May 2008 and underwent a successful brain surgery soon after that. But his health continued to deteriorate, and Kennedy suffered a seizure while attending the luncheon following President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

    What a YEAR this has been— I’ve lost count of the
    “Losses”…. This is another Great one, and right after that of his Sister no less. As with his Brothers before him, I always liked and respected Ted Kennedy as a Wise, Passionate, Righteous, and Unequaled Politician, admired his Character as a Genuine, Down-to-Earth, and Truly-Caring Human Being, and felt extremely Lucky to have his Presence and Leadership within our Government. It’s such a Shame to lose this extraordinary Figure who “Carried the Torch” for all of us in his Beliefs, Causes, and Dreams. He was “One Tough Cookie” to the end— giving his All to his Family, and to his Country, through unimaginable Personal Tragedies and his own Medical Circumstances. No doubt he will be sadly and greatly Missed by the Kennedy Clan, our Government, and the People, will forever be Cherished as a Good Man and “People-Person”, and Remembered as the Greatest Senator in American History. RIP.

    US Senator Ted Kennedy, a lion of the American left and the last of the brothers who dominated US politics for years, has died of brain cancer, his family said. He was 77.

    Edward M Kennedy was a towering, controversial figure whose death late on Tuesday night at his home in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, ended an era when his family appeared born to rule.

    “We’ve lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever,” his family said in a statement.

    ”We thank everyone who gave him care and support over this last year, and everyone who stood with him for so many years in his tireless march for progress toward justice, fairness and opportunity for all.

    ”He loved this country and devoted his life to serving it.”

    The ”liberal lion” of the Senate was the youngest of the Kennedy brothers.

    President John F Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.
