Sargent Shriver (1915-2011)

BETHESDA, MARYLAND - Muore oggi Sargent Shriver o, come lo chiamavan tutti, Sarge; creò i Peace Corps e sposò la mezzana dei fratelli Kennedy. Negli ultimi anni pare si fosse rincoglionito al punto da non riconoscere sua figlia.
Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Sarge came to embody the idea of public service. His loss will be felt in all of the communities around the world that have been touched by Peace Corps volunteers over the past half century and all of the lives that have been made better by his efforts to address inequality and injustice here at home.
-Barack Obama
