Ted Stevens

Alaska lost a very prominent citizen on August 9th. Ted Stevens, our former US senator, was killed in a plane crash. I was saddened to hear of his loss.

I "met" him on my 8th grade trip to Washington DC. In the image above, I am in left, right in the middle, in the blue shirt.

He was 86 years old, so he lived a full and long life. My prayers are with the senator's family and friends.
