RIP


RIP

In honor of a true American hero/heroine... Eunice Kennedy Shriver. No matter the belief of your politics she was such a true role model and pioneer!

Years ago, I was a volunteer for the Special Olympics games and their motto was, "you can't finish the race until you start it". I remember the faces of the many competitors that day and their wonderful smiles because you were cheering them on. Thank you Eunice for your gift, for the olympic torch has brought you to your true home. May we never forget your eternal flame of light.

One person can change the world, am sure that has been said many time before. Eunice is a bodhisattva. The word the Bodhisattva is an already wise person who uses skillful means to lead others to see the benefits of virtue and the cultivation of wisdom.

She was an incredible woman. Wonder if any of the younger Kennedy women will ever reach her stature! Nice tribute.
