In 2007, in a moment that was emblematic of the kind of passion and commitment Senator Kennedy brought to any activity, large or small, he hosted a screening of our film, Quiet Revolution. Such a small thing, but instead of coming in, saying a few words, and going home, he delivered an impassioned speech. That’s his way. Not only did he recognize his duty to serve, he went above and beyond that duty. From education to health care to gender equality to defending our courts, Senator Kennedy could always be counted on as an essential ally. Now we must honor his memory by not only reflecting on his legacy but by continuing to advance the values and causes he so valiantly championed during his unparalleled career.
