I wonder if Sargent Shriver realises.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics, younger sister of former president John F Kennedy, and mother-in-law of California's governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has died at the age of 88.
A statement from her family said she died in the early hours of this morning in hospital in Hyannis, Cape Cod. She had suffered a number of strokes in recent years. The town of Hyannis is closely associated with the Kennedy family and it has a museum commemorating JFK.
"We have always been honoured to share our mother with people of goodwill the world over who believe, as she did, that there is no limit to the human spirit," her family members said in a statement.
Shriver was noted for her charity work with children, and launched the Special Olympic Games in 1968, in which 190 countries now participate.
