Today a police car stopped all traffic at an intersection for a funeral procession. On one street corner, a young boy of about 12 years, standing with a large group of kids his age, stopped his friends, removed his baseball cap and held it to his chest until the procession passed, then he replaced it. His manners MMT.

A similar thing happened to me when I was riding in the funeral procession for my grandmother. A young boy and his grandfather were out at the end of their driveway collecting their mail and as the procession drove by, both took their hats off and held them over their hearts. That simple gesture, especially by someone so young, touched my heart so much that I still can't think of it without crying. You never know when a simple gesture may change a person's life.
