I don't normally talk about political things in this blog, but I just wanted to pay respect to the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. His list of accomplishments that are well-known to most of the world is long, but there is another one that many do not know of. He was a real person, and helped real people. I know firsthand, because he helped ME. About 25 or so years ago, I was having an extremely difficult time getting assistance for my son--who was born with an extremely rare condition--and kept getting the runaround, instead of help. Every agency I turned to, it seemed, wanted to pass me off to another agency, and nobody wanted to help us. After much frustration and many tears, I wrote to Senator Kennedy's office, and they personally called me to speak with me and see what our needs were, and to see how they could help. They said the Senator felt it important that my son get the assistance he rightly deserved and so badly needed, and so they were calling to find out more details to see what they could do. With their help and knowledge of different agencies and departments, they were instrumental in putting me in touch with the right people at the right time, and I was finally able to get my son the medical assistance he needed in order to thrive and grow into the wonderful, self-sufficient and independent person he is today. Without Senator Kennedy's assistance, I doubt I would have found the people I needed on my own. So, thank you, Senator Kennedy and staff, for helping me to obtain the assistance I needed that allowed my son to grow up to be the wonderful, independent person he is today. It is greatly, greatly appreciated!
