Goodbye to a Real American Hero; C. Everett Koop

Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop died this week at the age of 96. Christianity Today is featuring a series of articles on his life and impact. The link below is to an article on the triumphs and controversy's during his eight years as Surgeon General.

He was a man of real conviction who used the office to help as many people as possible. As a result, he took a great deal of emotional abuse from friends and foes. At one time or another, Dr. Koop was a lightning rod for every lobbying group in Washington. And he frequently defied the wishes of President Reagan. But Dr. Koop never wavered from his mission; using his office to help people who really needed  it.

God bless C. Everett Koop.
