Off Topic; Medal of Honour
The terrible rift in the Republican/Democratic political parties, tearing the country apart, was briefly set aside this afternoon while the extraordinary hero, Captain Larry Taylor, was awarded a well-deserved Medal of Honour. Having been appalled by watching that exceptional tribute bestowed upon an unworthy recipient in the not-too-distant past, it was heart-warming to view the medal appropriately presented.
Captain Taylor, a man of rare courage and strength of character, performed life-saving feats during the Vietnam conflict, acts that most men can only dream about. The President’s description of Taylor’s achievements brought me to tears and I’m sure that numerous attendees of the event were similarly affected.
I’d pay a bundle to shake that man’s hand!
