the creed he lived by

the creed he lived by
repeated, repeated
being part of something
greater than himself

plunged into service
into love, sacrifice
conscious of his flaws
giving of himself

“Make no mistake: the applause ringing out at the Cathedral when
Meghan McCain says 'America has no need to be made great again
because America was always great' is not standard.
Never heard applause at a funeral here before.”
emblematic of the escalating rhetoric between
President Donald J. Trump and John McCain
