    RIP


    I just wish he did one last honorable thing and resign a few months ago, it was pretty clear he could not continue his job as a senator.

    Having beaten a terminal illness, I found that the one biggest thing that kept me going was the hope of not just seeing one more day, but getting back in the saddle. I bet Senator McCain believed that he would make it back to his seat in Senate; with the same courage and determination that kept him going as a POW.

    We have lost a true hero and a guy I would love to have guarding my back in any situation. His life lived should be an inspiration to any proclaimed American.

    More like 5 1/2 years as a POW. I think he spent 2 years in solitary.

    As American's, we are all entitled to our own views and opinions and we enjoy the freedom to express them, perhaps, even to the chagrin of others. There is no question that few American's have ever given, or will ever even have the opportunity to serve their nation as has Senator McCain. His death is a great loss to this entire nation and his family and friends.

    In this hyper charged and increasingly tumultuous political environment in which we now live, Left or right, young or older and any other diversifying realities about each of us aside, what's been said and what wasn't said right along with what's been done and what failed to happen, is now all in the past. Now is a time of reflection and to acknowledge and be thankful for Senator McCain's enormous contributions to our whole nation.

    It seems inadequate to simply say thank you to Senator McCain and his family, considering the enormity of the cost he bore serving America over his lifetime. Even once Navy Captain McCain returned to the U.S. he remained in the Navy for many years. Despite the personal price he had already paid which few can comprehend and which he paid daily, for the remainder of his lifetime, it didn't dissuade him from launching a new chapter of his service to our great nation as an elected State Representative, followed by his election to the Senate where he remained until his death. As is typical of a husband and father and grandfather, his spouse and family shared in this huge toll for Senator McCain's lifetime of dedication to serve his nation.

    At a time in our society when the proclamation of someone as a hero is often too easily conferred to those undeserving of such a title and with the proliferation and popularity of Super Hero's among today's mythical characters, referring to someone as a Hero just doesn't convey the breadth of appreciation and acknowledgement of achievement as it should and once did. Perhaps a more fitting proclamation for Senator McCain would be that of a True Generational American Hero, recognizing just how infrequently such special people come along during our lives.

    A great American has just passed away and in the true form of a genuine True Generational American Hero, his dedication, service and personal sacrifice made America a better place for all. Whether one agrees or disagrees with his political positions and actions isn't what's important right now, it's the realization that there are very few people during our lifetimes who can and do give of themselves at such a huge personal cost for the betterment of our entire country.

    Rest in Peace, Senator McCain as you have earned the rewards of Eternity. Thank you for your immense personal sacrifice as well as your lifetime of dedication and service to our great nation.

    I didnít see any politics or political motivation in Kennyís post. I do see that he said a man should step down before he did. Whatís wrong with that?

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion and we all donít have to agree.

    I will openly admit I didn't agree with Senator McCains political views, at times, but he and his family deserve to be honored for his and their service to our country. RIP Senator. Thank you for your service to our country.

    Thanks SulleyBear, I couldn't have put it better. RIP Senator McCain. He governed more like the forefathers that founded this nation than the majority of the sorry excuse for politicians we have now.
