If you need further proof of just how heartless and self-centered people from this generation have become, a California family’s story will absolutely break your heart.
Last Saturday, Sgt. John Perry from Northern California was killed in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber. The Soldier was in the middle of running a 5K event for Veteran’s Day, but tragically, never made it to the finish line.
The family of the fallen Soldier was on a flight to bring the body of their dead son home, when people on the flight began to do the unthinkable. Because of the slight delay picking up the body caused, people on the flight began to boo.
“To hear the reaction of the flight being delayed because of a Gold Star family and the first class cabin booing, that was really upsetting, and it made us cry some more,” the father, Stewart Perry tearfully recounted.
The father went on to say that this is yet another incident of military service members facing disrespect, and his son’s underscores why the American flag is so sacred by many, and not a symbol for protest.
“It’s not for protest – it’s for the death of the people that are saving us. That’s what it’s for. “My kid was over there to help put a stop to this garbage, and he died,” he said.
How more vile can people get? Sgt. Perry gave his life to defend your freedom, and all you can do is boo because picking up his dead body caused a little delay in your freaking schedule? People are truly sick.
