“It is so easy to care for somebody else, and thankfully most Americans do it. ¬†America has a big heart, but we need to do a lot more caring for each other.”

Senator Dole has showed how much he cares for his country as a longtime member of Congress and decorated hero of World War II. A war injury left him partly paralyzed but didn’t stop him from becoming one of our country’s most powerful people. As Senate majority leader, he spearheaded the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act and inclusion of hospice in Medicare. He forged a bipartisan compromise that saved Social Security, and he continued to serve others in private life. As chairman of the National World War II Memorial, he raised $190 million to honor those who died for our freedoms. Then he raised $120 million for the families of 9/11 victims, and he now chairs the Caring Institute Board of Trustees, where he embodies the institute’s highest ideals. “It is so easy to care for somebody else, and thankfully most Americans do it,” he says. “America has a big heart, but we need to do a lot more caring for each other.”
