A few moments ago, on this Christmas Eve morning that I want to wish all of my friends and family the best upon, the Senate of the United States of America passed an historic health care bill 60-39… GOD BLESS the United States of America. There were many heroes in this fight, that seemed to last forever, but one stands out as a titan of humor and grace–Al Franken (D, MN). I last met with Al Franken in Vail, Colorado with a good friend of mine and our dog, an English Mastiff (apricot), at a little known place called the “Red Lion”. It is appropriate at this moment in “time”, as I sit at my desk here in Osterville, Massachusetts watching the gentle snow fall upon the lights of Christmas and think about the “Last Lion of the Senate”, Teddy Kennedy, and how his entire life was spent in the pursuit of helping people who needed it the most. His church, St. Andrews in Hyannisport, only a few doors down the road from where I sit, was sparkling the other day I took this shot. The sun was out in full glory and the dragons that you may be able to make out from this particular picture, seemed to call out and say, “let’s get this done”… words Teddy used to get his colleagues and constituents fired up about a cause too important for the befuddled form of communication that words often embody. Merry Christmas, dear sir Lion, and may God always be with you…your work in the United States Senate for over a decade has made this Christmas paramount for millions of American citizens who will now have the opportunity to get well. You can’t ask for a better Christmas present than that. God Bless you ALL. Peace~ M
