Let us not forget the messages of Teddy Kennedy - The Fight Goes on; The Cause Endures; The Hope Still Lives
On this late night in Washington, D.C., I want to remind all of you that the Honorable Senator Ted Kennedy would have been sympathetic to our struggles. He was always an advocate for education, and he will be sorely missed.
But as this picture of signs filled with solid lines of resolute kindness and surrounded by the powerful glow of candlelight shows: Kennedy's mission to represent those American voices that are so often ignored, suffocated, or unethically silenced still lives on . . . it is now our responsibility to pick up where he left off.
May you rest in peace, Senator Kennedy. Watch over us, guide us, as we continue your fight and abide by your mission - to push for justice FOR all. That includes the new indentured educated class.
