When John F. Kennedy wrote Profiles in Courage, he had people like George Kirby in mind. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the stand that George took, you can't deny his courage to do so, and for that I admire him. He gave us all a tremendous example of what it means to stand for what is right in the face of dire odds.

Thank you George, and rest in peace.
