This morning I had the privilege to ride as an escort to a fallen Hero, from a local airport to the funeral home in northern Virginia. The only reason that I post about this at all is due to the overwhelming turnout along the way. I was taken aback, perhaps due to my own ignorance...but what I consider huge crowds lined the way, along miles of country roads. Families, Boy Scouts, firefighters, all sorts of folks. I was totally moved and pleasantly surprised, on an otherwise sad and somber day.
