United to honor him

The Enterprise - - Community Forum -

For the first time since Mr. Trump was elected, the en­tire coun­try seemed to unite to pay honor, dig­nity and re­spect to a fel­low Amer­i­can on Sept. 1.

I felt ob­li­gated to post my Amer­i­can flag ev­ery day dur­ing the mourn­ing pe­riod at half-staff in re­spect to Sen. John McCain’s pass­ing. For the first time in a long time, both Repub­li­cans and Democrats seemed united in rec­og­niz­ing that a per­son of Sen. McCain’s cal­iber had earned honor, dig­nity and re­spect for serv­ing as a true Amer­i­can.

In­sults are not ap­pro­pri­ate. I can only hope the cur­rent wide­spread at­ti­tude will con­tinue for some time and the in­sults, anger and slan­der­ous com­ments will dis­ap­pear for the rest of Mr. Trump’s ten­ure. I am a reg­is­tered Demo­crat.
