“The Dream Shall Never Die”

During tonight’s taping of “Face the State” at the WFSB studios in Rocky Hill, interviewee Colin McEnroe referenced Ted Kennedy’s speech at the 1980 Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden. Its closing passage is not only beautifully written but captures Senator Kennedy’s final decades in public life:

“For me, a few hours ago, this campaign came to an end. For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die.”

  1. interesting that the speech sounded like an acceptance speech, not a concession statement
