It should go without saying that some issues transcend and override partisanship. Brain cancer should be one of them. It’s terrible that we live in an age when that even needs to be said.
Senator McCain is a war hero. He is a fine man with whom each of us has had disagreements. He is also one of the few people in Washington with a consistent record against wasteful spending and was opposed to earmarks well before the Tea Party ever existed.
Beyond all that, Senator McCain is a husband, a father, and a friend to many. He has fought many a great fight and this will be another fight he must tackle. I have no doubt that those of us of faith can help him through our prayers — to give his doctors wisdom, his family comfort, and him both peace and strength.
I hope you will pray for Senator McCain.
