I have spent a year of my life getting up every morning, turning on the news, and checking the status of President Ford. It is unbelievably strange to me that I, a Democrat, respected President Ford more than any other man who has held that office.
I was up all night watching the coverage. Took extensive notes, even. This is something I knew was coming, yet I'm still a bit numb. America has lost a patriot.
There are so many things I would like to say, but I can't quite put them together. Soon. My head is muddled this morning as I grapple with a newspaper article I am writing to run on Sunday, a letter of resignation that needs to be submitted to the ASISU Senate today, and then of course the sleep deprivation adds to the haze.
