Today some members of that "church" were in Bethalto IL to protest another military funeral, but as I drove into town I was overwhelmed with positive energy. All the major streets I came across were covered in American flags, big and small. People were gathering all along the side of the road to show support for Lcpl Kenneth Corzine and his family. Any business with a sign out front gave respects. I've never seen anything like it. It was incredibly moving.
It was so cold out it took my entire drive back home and then some to warm my body back up & I wasn't there nearly as long as a lot of these people. They braved the cold for hours to be a part of something they really believed in. I'm so glad that I was there to experience this. It's amazing to see what people are capable of and to see so much good come out.
