I'm deeply saddened by his impending demise. Sen. McCain is a war hero from Vietnam, his face slightly deformed from his trials in life, a man I hold at par or above with people like Elie Wiesel, Nelson Mandela and others. It takes a deep and an endless fountainhead of spirit to endure prolonged incarceration in a POW camp and not lose hope, after a war of attrition that involves both mind and body.

He came back strong, after being battered. He dedicated his life to the betterment of America, a life of service to people and principles he stood for, American Exceptionalism.

He could have been our President, and he would have been a good one. His primary mistake was picking Sarah Palin as his running mate. Good men can make mistakes too, but, that doesn't make them any less of a good man. He would have made a great President!

Did I always agree with his policies and approaches, especially with Republican politics? The answer is NO! But did I always agree with his Principles? The answer is a resounding YES!!

The only Republican to support or defy Trump based on Principles, not Values, nor Politics. Such men are rare.

I wish I could have met him. A role model of impeccable Character and Ethics.

Do not go gently into the night... Sir!!
