Meghan McCain’s Statement On Her Father’s Passing Goes Viral

Meghan McCain released a heart-warming statement minutes after reports surfaced that her father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), passed away late Saturday afternoon.

“My father, United States Senator John McCain III, departed this life today,” McCain began.

“I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things,” McCain wrote in her statement, which garnered over 16,000 retweets and 73,000 likes in just over 30 minutes. “He loved me, and I loved him. He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.”

“All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love,” McCain continued.

The family of the six-term U.S. senator announced on Friday that he had decided to end treatment in his battle against brain cancer, which he had fought against for over a year.

“My father’s passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long,” McCain continued. “We know that his flame lives on, in each of us. The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad — but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us.”

“My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can,” McCain concluded. “But in this loss, and in this sorrow, I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things.”

“‘The dream is ended: this is the morning.'”
