It is with great regret that we received the news of the passing of Senator John Glenn, a man who best expressed the pioneering spirit of the American nation.
Our thoughts go now with his family, the citizens of Columbus, Ohio, and his fellow peers who took pride and drew strength from his leadership.
Science and politics benefited from his fearless and spirit, and Georgia is proud to count him as one of the people who supported our first steps to independence and later on the foundation of a vibrant democracy.
As a soldier, explorer, and politician, Senator Glen lived a life of public service projecting a sense of moral integrity and commitment that will continue to inspire his fellow citizens and the rest of the world for years to come.
May he rest in peace.
