A Lion Who Roared for the Least Fortunate

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2009

On the death of Edward Kennedy, much will be written. Sweeping memorials by those who held his service dear, and petty swipes at the profligacy of his youth by political opponents. But Leonard Fein recalls a single event to commemorate him. Attending the funeral of Yitzhak Rabin, Kennedy brought to Israel dirt from the graves of his brothers, to sprinkle some of the dirt of Arlington at Mt. Herzl. A man unreasonably familiar with bidding farewell to slain heroes, commemorating another great man felled by an assassin's bullet.
