Those are incredible pictures.

I now live in southern Georgia. If you are driving down the road and you see a funeral procession heading towards you, everybody pulls over to the side of the road and stops untill all mourners have passed even if it is a 4 laned highway. It is to pay respect to the deceased and his family.

These pictures are more of a witness to how a community holds together in tragedy than an act of patriotism. It is the least we can do for someone who gave the ultimate sacrifice, be it a soldier on the battlefield or a fireman who dies in the line of duty.

Lest we forget that one person seems to believe it isn't necessary to show his support for the deceased's family or relatives:
George W. Bush


BTW, Carving turkey isn't the support I have in mind....
