Remembering Paul Wellstone

Today marks the third anniversary of the plane crash in Eveleth that killed Sen. Paul Wellstone, his wife Sheila, his daughter Marcia, staffers Will McLaughlin, Tom Lapic, and Mary McEvoy, and the two pilots.

Obviously, I wasn't around when President Kennedy was assassinated, but I've heard folks talk about it who were. Everyone seems to remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news. There have been two events during the course of my life that I remember similarly: the morning of Sept. 11th and the death of Sen. Wellstone on the morning of Oct. 25th, 2002.

The way we can best honor Paul's memory, of course, is by continuing to actively pursue Paul's dream of a better, more progressive America. Paul may be dead, but as long as we act in his memory, he will never be gone. Another good way to would be to honor Paul would be donate to Wellstone Action.

There's a Strib article from this morning, and even The Worst Blog in the World has something nice to say.

Rest in Peace, Paul. We miss you.
