If you read nothing else this Sunday mourning, read/listen to Meghan McCain’s remarks at her father’s funeral. You can find the video clip (17 minutes) and full transcript here: Meghan McCain pays tribute to her father, the late Sen. John McCain. Like her father, she is not afraid to say what she thinks.
We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served. He was a great fire who burned bright.
