Though I still am working on a draft of something bigger to post…I must comment on the passing of Tim Russert. Whatever feelings there may be about him from a political standpoint, he was a good man, from a lower middle class background, who worked hard and achieved great things, and I am saddened by this loss.

Something he said once stands out to me. It’s how he viewed his life and his loved ones. In a world where the rich, white, male, and upper class seem to have everything handed to them at the expense of so many others, I think we could do well to reflect on Tim’s words here:

“Remember: You are always, always loved, but you are never, never entitled.”
