I had just done a fairly patriotic post for "Flag". Also, in the aftermath of the Charleston shootings the words to go with our Stars and Stripes were being said a lot better by others.
It's been over three weeks since a young man full of hate was welcomed into a Bible study at a historic A.M.E. church and gunned down those good people. I've been meaning to watch President Obama's eulogy of Rev. Clementa Pinckney, but only today did I get around to it. Honestly, I'd heard so much about it, I just wanted to know what the big deal was. Now I understand.
"Patriotism" and "eulogy" don't seemingly go together well. Here, they are bound together by a gifted speaker.
So for this 52 Snapshots of Life, if you have not heard it in full already, I recommend making time to watch President Obama's moving, patriotic, grace-filled eulogy of Rev. Clementa Pinckney.
