The article focuses on Daniel Patrick Moynihan, former New York Senator, who has passed away in March, 2003. He left a legacy as the ultimate statesman dedicated to the government of the United States. His accomplishments and drives were punctuated by an insatiable curiosity, practical intelligence and Irish wit. Even those who may not have agreed with his positions honored his capabilities. The accolades for Moynihan reported after his death mirrored those made during his life. In 1993 and again this March, writer Michael Barone noted that Moynihan was the nation's best thinker among politicians since Abraham Lincoln, former U.S. President. Moynihan was always aware of the duty of a politician-to serve the citizens. This rare statesman, as described by Senator Edward Kennedy, is an inspiring figure for political action. This month, a few dozen of the risk management peers have taken such a cue to participate in government. Not everyone can become a senator, but every citizen can speak and be known. Perhaps while doing so, they will be able to inspire the next peerless politician.
