Ted Kennedy: He was very special
During last fall's presidential campaign, I heard that Sen. Kennedy was going to speak at a rally at East Los Angeles College, so I packed my camera and headed over to the campus. There he was, in the flesh, one of the many so-called liberals I had learned to dislike as a result of my upbringing in conservative Glendale (CA). Now, after a long education process, I could see up-close-and-personal, one of our real American heroes! Kennedy was speaking to the large bilingual crowd, encouraging them with the words, "Si se puede!" (Yes We Can!) It was a great moment, one that I will long remember.
