A photo circulating on the web is an example of what is good in this world — and what we need more of.
The video shows a soldier standing at attention in the pouring rain, outside his Jeep, in the middle of an intersection. The reason? A passing funeral procession.
“I was so completely touched by this today,” Erin Hester explained to Love What Matters. “I always get frustrated when I see cars that don’t pull to the side and stop for a procession, but this gentlemen went above and beyond. I feel pretty confident that there isn’t a military rule that soldiers have to do this. This made my heart happy to see the amount of respect that this gentleman showed a family that he doesn’t even know.”
In these times, it can be easy to get depressed about the state of affairs around us. But God is still on the throne, He is still moving, and respect and honor are not lost ideas.
