Charles Krauthammer was more than a towering intellect. The psychiatrist turned journalist and political writer faced life challenges that most of us could not even imagine having to confront. And yet he thrived.
Dr. Krauthammer offered well thought out perspectives in political and social policy issues for our times. Whatever one’s position or beliefs he forever gave us something more to think about.
But the reason I’m writing this letter is because this great man brought such civility to the public forum. His forever calm, kindly, non personal offense towards colleagues and political opponents is rapidly becoming a lost virtue.
God bless Dr. Krauthammer and now we need him more than ever.
