We Will Miss You Dr. Krauthammer

Nobody Reports

Charles Krauthammer…died today.

Most of us knew him as the voice we really wanted to hear on all the FOX debate panels with Bret Beir. He came into his full potential in the last years of his life, and I remember being the most impressed with him when he said this in the last book I read by him:

“We go for a swim, we take a few dives and I hit my head on the bottom of the pool,” he said in a Fox News special in 2013 that looked at his life. “The amazing thing is there was not even a cut on my head. It just hit at precisely the angle where all the force was transmitted to one spot…the cervical vertebrae which severed the spinal cord.”

REALLY bad luck for a 22-year old Harvard student. But no luck as to how he handled it: with class, and brilliance.

Lucky for Charles…there were doctors, and money to help him recover and go on to finish college. I can’t help but think that even though his courage and intelligence manage to make him the success he became, there are millions of men that may have the same injury, but not the money to keep them hoping forever for a great job with such a disability.

But that’s life.

Charles touched my life even more because my son, who did not read many books, read Charles’s books and was an even bigger fan than I was. There was many a time I disagreed with Charles (especially in his last few years) but I never mentioned them to my son. It was much more important for him to gain whatever he could from a man, who thought so much about life, and always tried to back up his opinions with what he saw as logical. I was just happy to see him in such good hands.

FOX lost Bill O’Reilly, but we can still see him on Newsmax. I’m sure Eric Boiling will come back when he’s ready.
But, we will never watch Krauthammer’s joke and laugh, and argue his thoughts ever again, and hear his spontaneous witty comments.

The conservative movement has lost a giant.

Surely, Dr. Krauthammer is swimming among the rainbows tonight. And now he can argue with all the other great minds that were just waiting to get on the panel.

R.I.P dear sir:

….And Charles, if you please— America could use some divine intervention. I’m sure you have some clout with the power that really matter.

Make your best case for those of us still fighting…now that you have box seats behind home plate, your game may have just begun.
