Neal suggested that this editorial cartoon be posted on Free Republic. So here it is from his web site.
thanks for the great post. That is the first time I have seen it. I have a Hugh lump in my throat. Just awsome.
Great post and sentiment, thank you.
Thank you for posting this.
His memorial services was so moving.
Some comments that Senator McCain made at that service:
In our blessed and mostly peaceful society we're not as familiar with courage as we once were. We are obliged to value our blessings, and to pay our debts to those who sacrificed to secure them for us.
They are blood debts we owe to the policemen and firemen who raced into the burning towers that others fled; to the men and women who left for dangerous, distant lands to take the war to our enemies and away from us, and to those who fought in all the wars of our history.
Our country's security doesn't depend on the heroism of every citizen. Nor does our individual happiness depend upon proving ourselves heroic. But we have to be worthy of the sacrifices made on our behalf. We have to love our freedom, not just for the ease or material benefits it provides, not just for the autonomy it guarantees us, but for the goodness it makes possible. We have to love it so much we won't let it be constrained by fear or selfishness. We have to love it as much, even if not as heroically, as Pat Tillman loved it.
A large semper fi bump!
I thought you'd be interested in this because of your tagline.
Thanks, for posting, and Thank God for the Pat Tillman's of the world.
OPs4 God Bless America!
Makes you proud to be a regular Atlanta listener to Neal, doesn't it?
...Saw this on Neals news. He talked about the fellow on his staff that draws cartoons. Gifted guy. Thanks for posting it...
I saw this at another thread and I thought it was good.
bump for saving
While I certainly agree with the sentiment, this particular representation doesn't do a thing for me.
Posted before but well worth posting again. Excellent!
