1 Year Since the Death of Senator Kennedy

It was one year ago today, that the “Lion of the Senate” passed away.

Early in the hours of Aug. 25th, Edward Moore Kennedy succumbed to his battle with cancer. He passed away in his Hyannisport home, after spending the previous year battling the illness, campaigning for Barack Obama, and spending time with his family.

His lasting legacy, most believe, is the eventual passage of the health care bill he championed for decades.

Senator Kennedy was buried alongside his brothers at Arlington National Cemetery.
