Does the demise of Ted Kennedy signify the end of an era?

Ted Kennedy is the last of the Kennedy brothers who had affected not just the political history of America but also the basic unit of society that had made the Kennedy family the example of their very own. Ted Kennedy had the length of years, compared to his kin many of whom had died tragically. Uncle Ted or Senator Kennedy had been the voice of hope for the past four decades. Can his death mean also the end of an era when everyone believes there will be a brighter tomorrow?

Without a doubt its an end to an era. Ted Kennedy will be surely missed in Government as a sitting senator. He cared for the underprivilged, the disabled, the poor. He did so much for civil rights and we will never have another senator like him. There is no one to replace him. The Kennedy family has lost there leader. May he rest in peace.

Many grateful a people had shown how endeared Ted Kennedy to them was by paying their last respects. I think that is a testament to a life well lived. I believe he is at peace now.

Hi us2owls, I do not understand the idiom nail on head. Am sorry.

I hope so. Maybe now the balance of power will begin to change and instead of just believing there will be a brighter tomorrow, someone can actually work toward one.

I think, all around the world, many leaders are trying their very best to make human lives better. We just couldn't get rid of terrorism and war, slavery and power play. Ted Kennedy had given his best shot, I think. It's the younger generations' turn now.
