Arizona Senator John McCain, a patriot and war hero who served for over three decades in Congress died on Saturday August 25, 2018. He was 81 years old. He fell victim to brain cancer. Although a lifelong Republican, he was held in high esteem by political rivals from both sides of the aisle.
It is difficult to find a decent and honest person like him in politics. The highlight of his decency and how he respected even his
opponents came during his election campaign for presidency against Obama in 2008.
When a woman in the audience said that she did not trust Obama because she thought he was an Arab, John replied “No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man, a citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign is all about.”
President Bush wrote in his tribute “Some lives are so vivid, it is difficult to imagine them ended. Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a
patriot of the highest order.”
