Ted Kennedy Shall Return

Edward Kennedy, also known as Ted Kennedy, will not be returning  to Capitol Hill this week when congress returns from their summer recess. For those of you who do not know, in May 76-year old Kennedy was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.  Currently he is working from inside of his home in Massachusetts but plans on returning to congress come January.

The latest appearance Ted has made was when he delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention.  I’m not going to lie, the only reason why I watched the Democratic National Convention was to see how, and if, Ted Kennedy was going to make a speech.  First of all, most people did not know how severe the cancer/brain surgery had effected the poor man.  With my pessimism  I thought that he was going to be like Dick Clark when he performs the New Years countdown! Fortunately though, he made an absolutely amazing speech; the surgery did not effect his performance what-so-ever.

I do not understand why Edward Kennedy is going to go through with returning to congress however. The fact of the matter is this: no matter how you look at it unfortunately this tumor, which surgeons could not remove, will be his eminent death. Knowing that he may not have much time left, why in the world would Edward Kennedy spend his last few months in congress instead of spending time with his family? I understand that congress may be his passion but I’d imagine if I were in his position I’d spend all of the time in the world with the people I love relaxing and being comfortable.

Either way, I will keep him in my prayers and hope for a miracle that could cure him of that horrible disease.

Do you think that it’s silly for Ted Kennedy to return to congress?

    It is consistent with Ted’s upbringing and the legacy of his martyred brothers that he is returning to the Senate. With or without the support of the new administration, Ted will continue to fight for those less fortunate than himself. It’s in the Kennedy DNA. I’m sure he’ll reach a point where it’s not possible to continue, but I predict it will be later rather than sooner. Kennedys are fighters and that’s why they’re so beloved. Like you, I’ll be keeping him in my prayers.
