Today was different. I got onto the bridge after getting through loads of traffic. I was hassled by the time is was taking to get into work. And as I pulled into the left lane I looked ahead of me.
There was a hearse with a flag draped coffin inside heading for Arlington National. And I stopped thinking about traffic. Stopped listening to the drone of background music. Stopped worrying about being 15 minutes late. Instead, I thought about the life changes that were riding in that hearse- changes for the family and friends and neighbors. Thought about the sacrifices made. And all I could think of was that I do not say "Thank-you" enough.
