A wounded culture

 

Wounded individuals maintain a fighting stance with clinched fists before them, always prepared for an anticipated attack. We are a wounded culture residing in a wounded society, ready to fight when we feel our rights have been violated. I am greatly saddened by the disrespectful response of the passengers in the first class section aboard the American Airlines aircraft, concerning one of our fallen soldiers. I do not believe the passengers in the first class section knew they were being detained to allow a grieving family to collect the ashes of their beloved family member Sgt. John Perry. They did know they were being detained to allow a special military family to disembark first, which I  consider an honor. I do believe we are a wounded culture residing in a wounded society in great need of healing. We need to raise our arms, with unclenched hands and embrace each other!
