A monumental loss

Minnesota suffered a monumental loss with the tragic demise of Sen. Paul Wellstone on Oct. 25. His liberal politics, respect for cultures, genuine concern for the underdog, and bold righteous beliefs on controversial national and international issues made him a true representative of what Minnesota stands for.

It was an honor to have him represent Minnesota’s spirit in the Senate. His charisma, fiery speeches and great sense of humor will be unsurpassed. The little giant has fallen but his legacy and memory will never fade.

It is a great loss for not only Minnesota, but also for the world because his opinion was a catalyst for progressive change.

He will be missed! May God bless all those who perished on the fateful morning of Oct. 25.
