Bob Dole QTD

December 9, 2021
"When we prioritize principles over party and humanity over personal legacy, we accomplish far more as a nation. By leading with a shared faith in each other, we become America at its best: a beacon of hope, a source of comfort in crisis, a shield against those who threaten freedom."

On Sunday, well-known politician and military veteran Bob Dole (98) passed away in his sleep. Dole grew up in Kansas during the Great Depression and later survived life-threatening injuries during World War II. He went on to become an attorney and eventually represented Kansas as a U.S. senator for nearly three decades. On Thursday, Dole will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, one of only 33 people to be honored in this way. Visit our source page to learn more about Bob Dole and the honor of lying in state.
