In spite of my earlier post, I did start watching some of the highlights from John McCain’s funeral proceedings today. It’s important that I did, and I’m glad I did, and do you know why?
Here in the Upside Down — in post-trump bizarro world (the lower case t is intentional) — I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face over a man I did not vote for, whose party and politics I never supported, and it feels very cleansing. Weird.
John McCain finally lost his battle with brain cancer and passed away today.
While I disagreed with much of John McCain’s platform, I never doubted that he was a good and noble man with integrity, a dedicated American, a war hero, and a true patriot who deserved to be treated with respect and dignity by the party who went rogue and abandoned him and his legacy in favor of the corrupt politics of Trump.
RIP, John McCain. You lived a life of service to us all. Thank you.
