God Bless America and Her Patriotic People

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia , just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough , Georgia . A
simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and
the approximate time.

Nowadays one can be led to believe that America no longer respects honor
and no longer honors sacrifice outside the military. Be it known that
there are many places in this land where people still recognize the
courage and impact of total self-sacrifice. Georgia remains one of
those graceful places. The link below is a short travelogue of that
day's remarkable and painful journey. But only watch this if you wish to
have some of your faith in people restored.

Please watch this video, it will renew your faith and hope in your fellow citizens. Make sure you have plenty handkerchiefs with you, it is a real emotional video.

Thank you to our friend Larren, for sharing this with us.

Wow. That was very moving. Didn't really think I would be needing the tissues. I was wrong. At least I was wearing my apron. :)
