A Gentle- man

 

I am watching a funeral of a hero.

There are so few left to honor.

A survivor, a son, a husband, a father and loyal servant.

A gentle man who was flawed yet admired.

A person who did not surrender to the mental and physical tortures he endured.

Often described as abrasive and relentless; yet revered as the example of grace.

The best of men has passed today.

Defined simply by the quality of his love; for family and nation.
