“Loss of a Brave American”


Description from dolllady aka Pam: Sen. John McCain was a former prisoner of war, a family man, and a great Senator. His death will be felt by many. I plan to possibly use this as a charm bracelet. The dragonfly symbolizes a family member checking on the family. He certainly earned his angel wings. Tears from many family members, friends, co workers.

    Thank you, Pam, for this heartfelt tribute to a great statesman, a brave man who endured suffering and worked hard because of his love for our country and democracy. Although I seldom agreed with his politics, I admired and respected his willingness to work with those on the other side of the isle and put tribalism aside for the good of America, not his donors.

    I totally agree with you. I’m so sorry that he had to suffer this last year of his life with cancer especially since he fought and won the battle with the same cancer once before. No one can say he has an easy life, but he still worried about our country.

    A fine tribute. Pam, I love the idea of a charm bracelet tribute and the charms you selected are well chosen. I might have put the six-shooter charm in for his “Maverick” reputation, but then again that could get misconstrued. I’m smiling thinking about that side now, though it used to drive me crazy a little. It was too much. But I guess if you split with the party sometimes & they start to call you a maverick, you run with it. He really did do the job right, IMHO.

    Many of your choices are good; one is perfect. Here was a man who always knew and followed his spiritual and moral true north.

    This will make a fine charm bracelet, a tribute to a brave American. I was always glad to see McCain break from the traditional conservative Republicans when it meant protecting the American people from a bad situation. I wish more representatives of the people would be so brave!
