He lies in state
Leaving politics aside for a moment - and there's much doubt as to whether that's physically possible for me, but here goes -
I can't help but pause over the Nancy/Ronnie relationship. All the things she stood by him through: the governorship, the presidency, the assissnation attempt, and, probably worst of all, the Alzheimers.
If you believe in love, that's probably it right there - that woman, that man, that flag. It isn't easy to love someone in the spotlight - regardless of the size of the beam. It isn't easy to stay with a strong man like that, I imagine.
But wherever there is love in the world, we should probably mark it as part of our search for truth. We take so much time to notice death and lies - it's important to strive for balance.
