|My boys, paying their respect|
We got up this morning and we lined the street outside the cemetery. I met some new people and reunited with others I have known since our time here. I loved the spirit that I felt there, one of unification and community.
|One of my favorite pics I snapped. I recognized one of the wrestlers parking and when I walked down the hill a bit, I saw them hang this sign on his truck. They were gracious enough to pose for me. So proud of the youth in our community!|
In recent weeks people have said some pretty ignorant comments to me in regards to our community. They have made comments about the transition of the Military making their lives a bit hard. As I stood on the side of the street today I thought briefly about those people and I suddenly felt sad for them. They don't get it. I looked to the left and the right of me and saw what it meant to live in this community and felt bad that they don't get to feel that sense of pride that can't even begin to be described in words.
Strangers lined up today and a family dispersed when the last vehicle left the cemetery. I pray for the McClure family and hope that they felt uplifted in love and honor as they paid respects to their Soldier and said their goodbyes. Rest in Peace SPC McClure, we won't forget.
