Dear Ted Kennedy,
I miss you, so many of us miss you, so very much.
Ted, I am torn on our current health care reform debate and I know,
if you were here, you could help us all understand this.
I am almost certain that if you were here now, we would not be having this rancorous debate.
This was your one of your life’s great passions,
and it is mine and so many that I converse with on the net.
You had a vision when so many were blind.
I want to listen to the ones you left in charge, Harkin, Dodd, Rockefeller,
they all have a very good point.
but I also know how much you loved the
Keith Olbermann Show, he and Howard Dean are on another path.
How silly to be in such a quandary,
shouldn’t I just know, like you did?
You had such a great internal rudder.
How did you always know the way?
How can we?
I have a preexisting condition and I feel like you would have protected me.
I do not want the Insurance Companies to have control and judgement over my life.
How can we make that happen now?
I just miss you and your leadership so much,
and I am in tears all over again just as I was on the day you left us.
Ted, I am just one person who is in need, I can not begin to imagine all the
extraordinary needs that are around us.
I know they are vast, I know you would have cared, very, very deeply.
Remember the old saying on postcards, how they often would state “Wish you were here”.
If I could send you a post card, I would first say,
“Wish you were here…”
sorry the picture would not be so pretty.
Then I would say,
Please go visit Joe, Howard, Barack, Rahm, John, Tom, Chris,
how about that whole darn senate.
I think they all need a little meaning in their life.
You could deliver.
Wish you were here…..
