Quote of the Damn Day: Ted Kennedy

I wish that loved ones did not have to die too young. I wish that tragedy never haunted a single soul. But I know that sometimes life breaks your heart, and I believe we best honor those who have been lost . . . when we pledge that they will always be in our hearts, and their example will never die.


--Ted Kennedy at the Worcester Cold Storage Fire Memorial, December 1999
