  • Agreed with him sometimes, disagreed with him other times. Towards the end he wanted to do the right thing.
    RIP Mr. McCain. :(

  • I didn’t always agree with him but he seemed like he was a good person, and he was most definitely a “war hero”, despite what the current potus thinks.

  • Appreciate his service in the Navy.

    The rest of this is political.

    And yet nothing nice to say about the man himself...

  • I am not one for politics. Never have been, never will be. But I know a good man when I see it, and you John McCain, were a good man. Put yourself in harms way, endured immeasurable torture and hardship, all for the greater cause of peace and freedom. Great father, husband and Hero. Not many of us will go to our graves with the same resume.

    No words could be more well written than the words of his daughter Meghan McCain...

    My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today.

    I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things. He loved me, and I loved him. He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.

    All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love.

    My father’s passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long. We know that his flame lives on, in each of us. The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad — but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us.

    Your prayers, for his soul and for our family, are sincerely appreciated.

    My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can. But in this loss, and in this sorrow, I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things:

    “The dream is ended: this is the morning.”

  • Good post Aros.

    McCain was a throwback to IMO a better era of politics where even if you disagreed with someone's politics, you could respect them for their honor and integrity.............and McCain embodied that.
