Please take the time to watch this. Can you imagine this happening in many liberal sections of our country . . . like San Francisco?

If this doesn't make your heart jump into your throat, something is wrong!!!

Killed in action the week before, the body of Staff 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.

In today's climate 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. Only watch this if you wish to have some of your faith in people restored. Please share widely.
