Remembering Senator Robert Byrd – Democrat Senator, West Virginia

June 28, 2010

By Padmini Arhant

Today, the United States Senate and the nation lost a longest serving Senator and the member in congressional history.

Senator Robert Carlyle Byrd, a Democrat from the state of West Virginia, political career span from January 2, 1959 – June 28, 2010.

Reflecting on the record, the Senator had previously struggled to keep pace with the social developments in the society.

Nevertheless, towards the end there appears to be some reconciliation with the erroneous decisions the Senator had made during his term in office.

No human being is infallible. Those who recognize the missed opportunities to contribute to positive changes and later do it right are honorable.

For the recent contributions benefiting all forms of life represents the core value, a confirmation of the fact that it’s never too late to act for greater good.

Senator Byrd has served the West Virginia constituents well. Otherwise it would have not been possible to hold the historic position in the Senate.

The democrats and other Congress members reminisced their time with the Senator from West Virginia.

Senator Robert Byrd’s unprecedented public service to the citizens in West Virginia and across the nation remembered with respect and gratitude.

Thank you.
