12 minutes of your life

Posted by cuorange on July 15, 2009

Please take 12 minutes out of your life to watch the video below.  It is terribly sad and gut wrentching, yet at the same time heart warming.  It’s nice to know that some people still care.

This is the last ride of an American hero to his home town. Watch and consider and reflect what an incredible privilege that you are able to be part of it.
 
Killed in action the week before, the body of Sgt. 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 of 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.
