Show respect for funeral processions

Show respect for funeral processions

January 27, 2014

What has happened to our society and our sense of respect?

For the second time in just a few months, I have been in a funeral procession when some driver thought his destination was so much more important that he broke the law and intervened into the processional. The second time, the trespasser was brazen enough to give hand gestures to the people in the funeral procession, as if they had interrupted his trip.

This is the last sign of respect for a human being and it is appalling to me to think some people think it is acceptable to do this. I shudder to think that this is what our society is coming to and what people think is acceptable.
