John McCain was a true American hero. He devoted his entire life to his country. His voice will be missed. Our respectful thoughts go to his beloved ones.___French President Emmanuel Macron


German Chancellor Angela Merkel is paying tribute to Sen. John McCain as "one of the great political personalities of our time."


She says that McCain was "a tireless fighter for a strong trans-Atlantic alliance; his significance went well beyond his own country."

Merkel says, "John McCain was led by the firm conviction that the sense of all political work lies in service to freedom, democracy and the rule of law. His death is a loss to all those who share this conviction."

People in Vietnam are remembering Sen. John McCain as having played an important role in normalizing relations between their country and the United States.
McCain was captured in 1967 when he parachuted into Hanoi's Truc Bach Lake after his Navy aircraft was shot down during a bombing mission. He spent over five years in the prison known as the "Hanoi Hilton."

On Sunday, a memorial was held at the lake, with residents leaving flowers to remember McCain, who died Saturday at the age of 81.

One resident, Nguyen Van Trung, says McCain "fought for peace in many countries, including Vietnam."

Another resident, Hoang Thi Trang, says that to the Vietnamese people, McCain "was not only a companion in resolving postwar issues, but also a friend."

Not a bad idea. Would be a nice tribute.

Chuck Schumer plans to introduce resolution to rename historic Senate office building after McCain

Just minutes after news of John McCain’s death broke late Saturday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he plans to introduce legislation to rename an office Senate building after McCain, an idea that would encase the longtime Arizona senator’s legacy on Capitol Hill forever.

What are the details?

In a show of mutual respect for McCain’s love of America and brand of bipartisan politics, Schumer said in a statement that he will introduce legislation to rename the Senate’s Russell building after McCain.

Schumer said:

As you go through life, you meet few truly great people. John McCain was one of them. His dedication to his country and the military were unsurpassed, and maybe most of all, he was a truth teller — never afraid to speak truth to power in an era where that has become all too rare. The Senate, the United States, and the world are lesser places without John McCain.

Nothing will overcome the loss of Senator McCain, but so that generations remember him I will be introducing a resolution to rename the Russell building after him.

The Russell Senate Office Building is one of the oldest office structures on Capitol Hill. It took 5 years to build with construction finishing in 1908. It was given its modern namesake in 1972 to honor longtime Georgia Senator Richard Russell, who served in the Senate from 1933 to 1971.


Many have spearheaded efforts over the years to rename the building — namely because Russell was an avowed segregationist — but those efforts have failed. However, it’s likely that a bipartisan effort rename the building in McCain’s honor would succeed.

Additionally, McCain’s office was located in the building, Suite 218.

My sympathy for the family of John McCain and also for the families of all the POW's left behind and covered up in Viet Nam.

"My fellow Americans, whom I have gratefully served for 60 years, and especially my fellow Arizonans,

Thank you for the privilege of serving you and for the rewarding life of service in uniform and service in public office has allowed me to lead. I have tried to serve our country honorably. I have made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them.

I’ve often observed that I’m the luckiest person on earth. I feel that way even now as I prepare for the end of my life. I’ve loved my life, all of it. I’ve had experiences, adventures, friendships enough for 10 satisfying lives, and I am so thankful. Like most people, I have regrets. But I would not trade a day of my life, in good or bad times, for the best day of anybody else’s.

I owe this satisfaction to the love of my family. No man ever had a more loving wife or children he was prouder of than I am of mine. And I owe it to America. To be connected to America’s causes — liberty, equal justice, respect for the dignity of all people — brings happiness more sublime than life’s fleeting pleasures. Our identities and sense of worth are not circumscribed but are enlarged by serving good causes bigger than ourselves.

Fellow Americans, that association has meant more to me than any other. I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the world’s greatest Republic, a nation of ideals — not blood and soil. We are blessed and are a blessing to humanity when we uphold and advance those ideals at home and in the world. We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history, and we have acquired great wealth and great power in the process.

We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals rather than trust them to be the great force for change they’ve always been. We are 325 million opinionated vociferous individuals. We argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates. But we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement. If only we remember that and give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country, we will get through these challenging times. We will come through them stronger than before. We always do.

Ten years ago, I had the privilege to concede defeat in the election for president. I want to end my farewell to you with heartfelt faith in Americans that I felt so powerfully that evening. I feel it powerfully still. Do not despair of our present difficulties. We believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit, we never surrender, we never hide from history. We make history. Farewell, fellow Americans. God bless you and God bless America."

-John McCain's farewell letter

I may have misheard but I thought the news said McCain left instructions for Bush and Obama to give the eulogy at the funeral and that he doesn't want Trump to attend at all.

Am I right or wrong?

Per McCain's 'Farewell Letter' that Salty posted

Quote:
Do not despair of our present difficulties


To McCain and the rest of the Trump hater's, this awesome, booming economy
is a 'present difficulty' and they won't rest until they ruin it. The Left really cares about American citizen's don't they.
