Yesterday at the airport, my husband witnessed something heartbreaking. People were streaming towards the window above the tarmac to watch a plane that had just landed. All sorts of emergency vehicles were there. When he walked over, he realized what was going on. The plane was unloading a soldier's draped casket. Military personnel where there to salute it as it was being unloaded. Inside, folks began singing "God Bless America". Hubby nearly lost it and had to turn away when he saw "mom" drape herself over the top of the casket. I can't imagine the pain she had to be feeling in that moment.
