Arizona Senator was upstanding man

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Many, many tributes have and will be written for Senator John McCain by his friends, colleagues and the admirers who knew the extraordinary man best. Nonetheless, I too feel bereft as an American and want to express my sorrow and admiration for Arizona’s senior Senator, Navy aviator and Vietnam POW who died last Saturday at 81-years-old. John McCain believed in the American exceptionalism that he embodied. He lived up to a higher ideal, to a belief in righteousness and truth that transcended politics and party. Despite not agreeing with him on every issue, I respected him as trustworthy and knew he cared more for the welfare of the American people than his own interests. He was a rarity, a statesman with integrity, and will be missed.
