“Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.
~Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls
I watched the funeral of John McCain today all the way down here in Costa Rica thanks to modern technology. His casket sat in the very spot where I partook of communion in the worship service I attended there back during my 2013 Visit to Washington, DC.
With all the ugly divisiveness coming from the White House and Republican Congress now, it was good to see a bipartisan celebration of a truly good man’s life today. There is still hope for America that different political parties, races, religions and lifestyles can come together to make a difference, to build a country on ideas that make it truly “A shining light on a hill” for democracy and equality for all mankind! But it still depends on the actions of every American and the Hemingway quote struck me the most from the funeral, “But what will happen in all the other days that ever come can depend on what you do today.”
God bless America! I had about given up hope for you.
