On John McCain and Camp

John McCain was one of my idols and one of the finest Americans our country had left to offer. Committed to a life in public service, he made us proud both at home and abroad, and stuck to his principals regardless of whatever might have stood in his way. He wrote an op-ed in the New York Times about the Ernest Hemingway novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, and I think it is a terrific encapsulation of who the man was and what he stood for. He is a true American in every sense, and I will speak on behalf of everyone and will say that we will miss him.

The news came as I was away in Traverse City for the Michigan Club Track team this weekend, which was an incredible experience. It was my first time in Northern Michigan, and it is absolutely beautiful. Going away and being with some of my best friends was a great experience and motivated me for the school year and track season. I hope everyone had a terrific weekend!
