With Appreciation for the Wisdom and Courage (Then and Now) of Senator John McCain

So teach us to count our days
that we may gain a wise heart (Psalm 90:12).

There was a time I just wanted him to go away;
now I want him to stay but he just might have to go away.
The prospect of immanent death has a way
of waking up the conscience to what one,
in wisdom and courage, must say.
