2 Samuel 1:25
How the mighty have fallen . . .
I have just watched the entire JFK funeral (all four hours of it) for the second time in 50 years, presented on CSPAN as a public service.
The first time I was 18 years old and I felt like my heart had been ripped out. Now i am about to turn 69, and I watched the entire four hours without a twinge, just a certain sadness at how death wipes people off the face of the earth, even the mighty, with an indifferent hand.
