  •  This is a wonderful remembrance, thank you .. (3+ / 0-)

    ... for writing.

    I voted for McGovern in 1972.  It was the first election I could vote in; and it was my first year at Chapel Hill.  My recollection is that we were as a campus for the most part very much against the war, and very excited to have McGovern to vote for.

    So today I am thankful for George McGovern.  He gave us hope at a time when it seemed Washington and much of the nation were refusing to see the truth of the war.  And his presence at the top of the ticket helped to shape the future of so many of us on the left at that time.

    Love one another
