Honor. Integrity. Grit. Candor. Respect. Courage. These were words that John McCain exemplified while representing the Grand Canyon State. From decorated POW to a member of Congress to presidential candidate to eminent statesman, he continued his family’s storied tradition of service to country. Few politicians’ words carried weight like McCain’s, and now the nation has lost a vital voice in statecraft and in our everyday political life. May his example be the guiding star for all of us in our lives and in our continuing discourse. Thank you, Senator McCain for offering such a historical and political legacy. You will be missed.
