An inspiration

Sen. Paul Wellstone lived so courageously and with such purpose and vigor. I was blessed with an opportunity to meet him while interning in Washington, D.C., last fall and was struck by his disarming demeanor and energy. In a time where there seem to be few heroes left to truly inspire and stir our spirits, Wellstone did just that. We should be mindful to continue his legacy through a commitment to public service, our family and our friends. We were so fortunate to have been served by him.
