Senator John McCain will be missed.
As many of us have witnessed over the last few days since his passing, he has many loud critics on both sides of the aisle.
That’s what happens when you stand up to your own party and stand up for what you believe in, regardless of the political fallout.
His life was one of public service that is a testament to what it means to be an American.
Throughout my life, I remember disagreeing with Sen. McCain many times. This did not strip away what we had in common, we put people over party.
We’re Americans striving to make a positive difference for others, our country, and to help pave the way for a better future for our children and our children’s children.
None of us are perfect people, but all of us are capable of doing so much more for others than we usually put forth the effort to achieve.
That is the real lesson of the life of John McCain. He always wanted to be better, do better, and make this country a better place. That’s a path of public service we all should be encouraged by because we each can walk it as well.
My condolences go out to the McCain family and his many loved ones as they honor and remember him. He will be remembered.
