I just heard about this! I haven't posted in a long time but as soon as I heard this news I came here right away.
Isn't that amazing that he died on the Fourth of July? I'm sure God has a message in that somehow. And Sen. Helms loved the Fourth:
"I shall always remember the shady streets, the quiet Sundays, the cotton wagons, the Fourth of July parades, the New Year's Eve firecrackers. I shall never forget the stream of school kids marching uptown to place flowers on the Courthouse Square monument on Confederate Memorial Day," Helms wrote in a newspaper column in 1956. (quote from today's online Denver Post)
There may never be another Senator with his long and consistent record in opposition to Communism, Castro, abortion, and gays. He didn't care when he was called names by liberals. He knew who he was!
Helms will be missed by so many in DC and all over the country.
Glad you posted. Indeed. Senator Helms was the most important and valuable (and beloved and hated) Senator of our time. What a privilege to have known him!
