I know I posted this on my Scripture blog, but I was listening to the radio today and this song came on... made me want to repost this on this blog now.

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 share widely.
