    Funeral for a local soldier. There were some protesters planning on showing up, so us locals showed up by the hundreds to show our moral support for the family of the soldier. Lots of old people, kids, biker gangs, cops, farmers, veterans, housewives, rednecks, hippies, and such. All there in a show of respect for the sacrifice that was made, regardless of our individual opinions of the war itself.

    Protesting at the funeral of a soldier disgusts me. It's so disrespectful. But you did a fantastic job of showing the support that people had for the soldier and his family. Good job.

    Were the protestors the religious nut family I heard so much about?
    Good for you. I'm glad you did this.
    Hugs!

    It's so sad to realise that so many sacrificed their lives so that the remainder of us can live in lands of freedom. Others treat that freedom with disdain. My own father went through the horror of the first world war and the huge loss of life, not for himself, but for us that benefit from that
    huge safrifice. Hold up the flag.
