Edward Kennedy a truly great man

I am very saddened by Sen. Edward Kennedy’s death.

By: Bruce D. Brovold, Fargo

I am very saddened by Sen. Edward Kennedy’s death. He truly was a great senator and a giving man to family and country.

Despite Sen. Kennedy’s wealth, he was always a fighter for the poor, elderly and disabled. He had more than 300 different laws passed in the Senate to help these people. He was also instrumental in the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Sen. Kennedy was an inspiration to me. That is why I took up the fight for so many years now, to help the elderly, disabled and poor citizens of Fargo.

Sen. Kennedy will surely be missed; however, the hard work he has accomplished to help the vulnerable citizens of this country will never be forgotten. Thank you, Sen. Kennedy.
