The America Of John McCain Has No Need To Be Made Great Again Because America Was Always Great! The senator’s daughter Meghan McCain and former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush were among those who made eulogies to John McCain at a memorial service on Saturday during an emotional moment of pain to say goodbye a national hero, a sailor, an admiral, a pilot, an officer, a senator, a father but on top of all a patriotic impeccable public servant.
The ceremony started by the senator’s daughter Meghan McCain, a wonderful and strong young woman even in this difficult moment has the courage to express herself and deliver to the public an insider view of the dimension of John McCain as a compassionate man of who affected everyone around of him with love a true with passion and respect to accept you as human being and a fellow American.
A love to transcend pain and suffering by replacing them by admiration and elevation of others to the top, by his capacity to recognize the value of each human being regardless of the origin or sociopolitical affiliation.
Because John McCain was defined by love. She also gave us a pictural view of what America represents, what was the vision of the America of John McCain which is not so different with the aspiration of all people living in this nation.
Because according to Meghan McCain:
The America of John McCain is the America of Abraham Lincoln. Fulfilling the promise of the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal and suffering greatly to see it through.
The America of John McCain is the America of the boys who rushed the colors in every war across three centuries, knowing in them is the life of the republic and particularly those — by their daring — as Ronald Reagan said, “gave up their chance at being husbands and fathers and grandfathers and gave up their chance to be revered, old men.”
The America of John McCain is, yes, the America of Vietnam. Fighting the fight even in the most forlorn cause, even in the most grim circumstances, even in the most distant and hostile corner of the world. Standing in defeat for the life and liberty of other peoples in other lands.
The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She is resourceful and confident and secure. She meets her responsibilities, she speaks quietly because she is strong. America does not boast because she has no need to.
Her speech was following by Barack Obama’s reading his Eulogy for John McCain
In his allocution to the public, Former President Barack Obama on Saturday delivered a eulogy on behalf of Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral attended by many of Washington’s top current and former lawmakers.
Mister Obama said we come to celebrate an extraordinary man. A warrior, a statesman, a patriot who embodied so much that is best in America.
President Bush and I are among the fortunate few who competed against John at the highest levels of politics. He made us better presidents. Just as he made the Senate better. Just as he made this country better. So for someone like John to ask you, while he’s still alive, to stand and speak of him when he’s gone, is a precious and singular honor.
The former president express is gratitude to Senator John McCain and told us his favorite quote from his favorite book :
Mister Obama reminds us that McCain was for America a content reminder, a fighter to protect the democratic values, to do not fail in our mission because John believed in honest argument and hearing other views. He understood that if we get in the habit of bending the truth to suit political expediency or party orthodoxy, our democracy will not work.
Former President George W. Bush in a wonderful sentence said:
“Some lives are so vivid, it is difficult to imagine them ended. Some voices are so vibrant and distinctive, it is hard to think of them stilled. A man who seldom rested is laid to rest. And his absence is tangible, like the silence after a mighty roar”.
Mister Bush reflected on his political rivalry with Senator John McCain during the 2000 campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. When later on a few moments before his last debate ever with Senator John Kerry in Phoenix, he said I was trying to gather some thoughts in the holding room. I felt a presence… opened my eyes…and six inches from my face was McCain, who yelled, “RELAX! RELAX!”
As mister his other former President Barack Obama, President George W. Bush was also grateful for John McCain support and fights on different subjects to help him become a better president. For him, the senator was honorable always recognizing that his opponents were still patriots and human beings after all.
All the major speakers at the John McCain memorial service this Saturday, September 1st, 2018 in their speeches has mentioned for us some aspect of John McCain life the public never knew, they told us about a guy who never had a chance to become The Commandant in chief of the nation but who had do more the that for being a coach for two former great presidents and former first lady’s respectively M. Barack & Ms. Michel Obama, and M. George W. & Ms. Laura Bush.
More than that inside the cathedral another friend and third M. William Jefferson Clinton is an American politician who served as the 42nd President of United States and Ms. Hillary Clinton former first lady was also present in the same room to pay tribute to Senator John McCain the big absent was the actual President M. Donald J. Trump ban by disgrace for his behavior by a man who everyone admire for his love for this country.
Senator John McCain will always present in our heart because he lived and die achieving an eternal combat to keep American democracy with dignity and integrity as a hero and a lawmaker, a patriot, a fighter for social justice.
