Here’s a brilliant, must-read article by CNN Politics, as the world digests that John McCain has brain cancer. The article starts by hoping that the senator makes a full recovery. It recommends that the American body politic should pause and reflect on the remarkable life of the Arizona Republican.

In an era of increasingly grubby politics, this article reminds us that public service still matters. The article concludes brilliantly:

His story is truly amazing not because he did everything right or because everything went his way. He didn’t. And it didn’t. His story is amazing because he’s been knocked down in ways big and small throughout his life. And he just keeps getting up.
