4. I miss Teddy very much. He got me into politics.

I'm only 27 now, and I was younger still when I began watching his speeches. He always seemed an honest advocate for people who had no voice among the powerful, and that appealed to me, more so now that I'm disabled. When Teddy got passionate about a speech, his voice boomed and drew you in. He commanded the Senate when he stood up to speak.

It makes me sad that he is gone, but at the same time, I'm glad to see many of the causes he stood for thriving even after his passing.
