I realize I’ve spent considerable time this past week on the passing of Senator John McCain, and I’m hoping you’ll indulge me one more time. I think one of the reasons why his passing has hit me so hard, despite me not agreeing with his political views, is his loving relationship with his daughter Meghan. It reminded me so much of my relationship with my dad, who also served in the military and died of brain cancer. One of the most powerful moments in the funeral service this morning came as Meghan gave a fiery and moving tribute to her dad and I’d like to share it with anyone who didn’t see it.
One last time I’d like to say R.I.P. to John McCain. He may have been imperfect, as we all are, but he was a true American hero and patriot.
