MOURN........... A GREAT LION OF YOUR PEOPLE HAS FALLEN

mourn THE PASSING OF A MAN
WHO SOUGHT TO:  FIGHT--
                         THE CHAINS OF INJUSTICE
                        TO SET THE OPPRESSED FREE
                             TO FEED THE HUNGRY
                TO PROVIDE SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS
                      TO HELP THE OPPRESSED WORKER
          -------------                                  --------------

               SHOUT IT ALOUD DO NOT HOLD BACK     
                  RAISE YOUR VOICE LIKE A TRUMPET   
              DECLARE TO MY PEOPLE THEIR REBELLION  
              AND TO THE HOUSE OF JACOB THEIR SINS  
       ........................................................................
           REQUIEM                                    ISAIAH 58
        TED KENNEDY

    I don't know who you are referening to here. It seems like a quote from the Bible. There is a lot of things that have fallen and we as a nation need to mourn and weep for a revivel of our nations religious foundation and an awakening to a relationship to God. Sara
