Remembering Eunice Shriver

 |  NCR Today

News media every where are reporting that Eunice Kennedy Shriver, younger sister of President John F. Kennedy and founder of the Special Olympics, died this morning. She was 88.

NCR columnist Coleman McCarthy wrote about Shriver in 2007. The usually curmudgeonly McCarthy began his column: "Whenever I've been with Eunice Kennedy Shriver, I've always come away thinking, 'I must become a better person.' "

Here is McCarthy's 2007 column: Energetic champion for the disabled.
