Senator John McCain Has Died

Former presidential candidate and senator John McCain has died after a long battle with aggressive glioblastoma. He was 81.

This news come justice day after his family announced his decision to discontinue medical treatment.

McCain, who ran for president twice, retreated from the “spotlight” in December 2017 to battle the disease. Still, that didn’t stop him from being one of the few Republicans to speak out against Donald Trump.

In his memoir, which was published in May, McCain wrote that he didn’t want to leave this world, but was happy with the “small” impact he had made.

“It’s been quite a ride. I’ve known great passions, seen amazing wonders, fought in a war, and helped make peace,” McCain wrote. “I’ve lived very well and I’ve been deprived of all comforts. I’ve been as lonely as a person can be and I’ve enjoyed the company of heroes. I’ve suffered the deepest despair and experienced the highest exultation.

“I made a small place for myself in the story of America and the history of my times.”

During his stint in the military, McCain was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, the Legion of Merit, a Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

He is survived by wife, Cindy, and seven children. His mother, Roberta, aged 106, is also still living.
