How An Honorable American President Deals With The Rain

November 10, 2018

Today the United States of America suffered another stunning and needless level of international embarrassment when Donald Trump refused to honor the dead of World War I.

We have had presidents with honor.  We will again.  But we have no one in the Oval Office presently with any regard for honor or an ethical way of living.

Therefore allow me to take my readers back to only a few years ago.

President Barack Obama walked in the rain among the graves of U.S. casualties from the Iraq and Afghan wars at Arlington National Cemetery and took an unscheduled detour into section 60, a thicket of simple white headstones, to mark Veterans Day.  The first couple, bareheaded and ignoring the miserable weather, spoke and shook hands with visitors they found by the gravesides, one of whom Michelle Obama hugged.

 

President Barack Obama spoke in the pouring rain during a Memorial Day event at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois, May 31, 2010.
