A friend sent this photo of one of the many crowds that gathered in Texas on Monday to pay their respects to Chris Kyle. While too many of our “leaders” were oblivious, these ordinary Americans organized themselves to show respect for a great hero. Patriotic ordinary Americans like the people in this photo are the heart and hope of this country. The lesson here, as in so many things lately, is don’t wait for or rely on government to do anything for you. You have more sense and discernment than most politicians.
Which leads to this Limerick.
Chris Kyle laid to rest down in Texas.
A hero, his death does perplex us.
Ignores his internment.
Get with it, Obama, you vex us!
