Prayers and thoughts have been pouring in from across the globe following the news of U.S Sen. John McCain's death on Aug. 25, 2018.

Sen. Todd Young issued the following statement:

“John McCain was a patriot and hero who served our country in uniform and in the senate with extraordinary courage, passion, sacrifice and integrity. I join with his family, his friends, our colleagues in the Senate and all Americans in mourning the passing of one of the finest leaders our nation has produced. We can honor his life and legacy by ensuring America continues to lead from a position of strength and principle - standing up for freedom, the oppressed, the dispossessed and the rule of law.”

U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski released this statement:

“John McCain was an American hero and patriot. He left an indelible mark on the country he loved with his unwavering dedication to the defense of freedom, the security of our nation and the protection of our brave men and women in uniform. I am praying for his family as they and all Americans mourn his passing.”
