Give tribute to John McCain

Editor,

John McCain said “nothing in life is more liberating than to fight for a cause larger than yourself.” One of his favorite quotes was from Hemingway, “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are stronger at the broken places.”

Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) was made of “the right stuff.” He was a statesman and courageous soldier, leaves a legacy of service to his beloved country, was a friend and adversary to both sides of the aisle, authentic, honest and decent. Friends and foe alike say Sen. McCain had a terrific sense of humor — “he made you laugh.” While they are big boots to fill, we need men and women in Washington to “work together” to bring our nation back to decency and the rule of law as Senator McCain modeled for all of us.
