Funeral procession, Pensacola Florida

The camera is inside the car of the Watson family as they drive to their son's funeral on base.

I've never seen anything like this. It seems the entire Navy showed up to line the miles-long driveway both sides to salute the families as they drive through.

It's quiet. We hear the sound of the emergency blinkers. The women sniffle and weep and whimper then sob. It's too much.

The real America.

This is why nobody gives a damn about impeachment.

I felt this way before, but, once it goes to discovery, the Demos will look so bad, the number of states Trump takes will surprise everybody.

Words fail, what a gesture.

The willingness of others to commit to duty, attend to honor, hold faith, stand strong and remain present in the face of adversity and death amazes me and brings tears to my eyes. Tears of awe and wonder, mixed with sorrow and a deep sense of gratitude.

Thank you for sharing this.
