Ted Kennedy son tells Dad the job is done
Nothing can tell it like this regarding the historic accomplishment of passing healthcare reform. Patrick Kennedy said thanks for all Americans. All Americans can reflect and say thanks to all of the Kennedys that America became a more civil place resulting from their sacrifices. They gave their lives and they fought to the end.
“'Dad, the unfinished business is done'
Son of health reform champion Ted Kennedy leaves note on father's grave

WASHINGTON - The political odyssey of health care reform in many ways is the story of Ted KennedayTed Kennedy, and as President Obama signed the historic bill into law Tuesday, Kennedy's gravesite is a place of quiet celebration and poignant reflection.
The late senator's widow, Vicki Reggie Kennedy, spent hours on Sunday at the simple white cross at Arlington National Cemetery marking where her husband was laid to rest only seven months ago. Ted Kennedy's youngest son, Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-R.I.), visited on Monday morning and left a hand-written note that read: "Dad, the unfinished business is done."
And on a dreary Tuesday morning, dozens of school children and health care advocates paused at Kennedy's tombstone to commemorate the man who for decades made overhauling the nation's health-care system his life's mission.”
