I supported Sen McCain, not so much for what I thought he could do for me , but more of what I could do for him. I like Sen. McCains idea of America. I like Senator McCains life of service to his country and his view that sacrafice and struggle makes a person stronger. I admire Sen McCains display of life long courage to stand for what he beleived in , even in the face of his allies disagreement.
I said long ago that I related personally with Sen McCain and held him as a example for my life. I hope that at the end of my life someone will say things about me like I do of Sen McCain... He always display's courage honour and humility to service. These are ideas that can not be promoted and fabricated by those around you ... these are things that must be earned. This character is earned outside of the spotlights and televisions cameras , this character comes from things that columnists can not write about. I am having trouble even putting into words my admiration of Sen McCain , its not politcal , its not religious, its not some gleaming object. It is strong , silent and hidden away in the strongest part of my soul.
Although I opposed Sen Obama , I am hopefull that he too sees these ideals that Sen McCain displays. I was very moved by Sen Obama's comments last night about Sen McCain .. and I could not have said it better.
We must not forget Sen McCains generation of men , they are and always will be my heroes.
