Gabrielle Giffords smiled, Sargent Shriver was honored in a memorial service Saturday, and our nation is experiencing a wave of open-heartedness that offers such a refreshing change from the exhaustive finger-pointing of politics.
Sargent Shriver was one of the most attractive, dynamic, and accomplished men of his time. When President John F. Kennedy chose Mr. Shriver to create the Peace Corps in 1961, it was a brilliant choice.
While we mourn the loss of Sarge Shriver, we also celebrate his extraordinary life. And we should challenge ourselves, to do what Sarge did so inspirationally -- try to make a difference and bring more peace and justice to our world.
America lost one of its shining lights this week. Sargent Shriver, an unfaltering beacon for peace and an indefatigable bastion against poverty, was a tireless bearer of burdens of those less fortunate.
Sargent Shriver was ninety-five and lived an incredibly rich and productive life, and much of my sadness today is about his greatest creation, the Peace Corps -- a great organization which has surely been neglected and lost its way.
The Peace Corps remains a shining example of what US foreign policy might be. It is far more important than the military model in addressing the overwhelming crises that will give birth to violence in our future.
