This one may seem weird but today I'm thankful for military funerals. Because they make you stop and realize this is something serious. I don't think until the guns went off that most of the folks attending realized how serious the occasion actually was this evening. There was a noticeable change in the feeling in the room. And I'm thankful for those folks who sign up to be the honor guard and show up to the funerals when called. I'll admit it was my first time attending a military funeral at all and it was a very interesting experience. You'd think after being around the military my entire life, it would not have been the first one but for me it was. May God Bless that young man and be with his parents and sister in the coming months. I know the path they will be walking is a lonely one and not an easy one travel.
