  • I am Jamaican. I first came to know of Sen. Inouye earlier this year when I was preparing for an exam on the Jamaican Senate and I felt like doing a comparative analysis. Since Sen Inouye’s passing I have tried to learn more about him. Suffice it to say he is now one of my all time favourite American politicians. He is a great man and he has done a great deal for his state and country. My condolences to his family. May his soul Rest In Peace.
