Gerald R. Ford – 4 January 2007
Former President Gerald R. Ford is one of two Presidents whom I saw
and heard in person; the other was Ronald Reagan.
Yesterday I watched our 38th President’s televised funeral which was
held in Grand Rapids, Michigan; and I was deeply moved by the service
held in Grace Episcopal Church. The touching eulogies by Donald Rumsfeld
and former President Jimmy Carter described a truly good man. The Bible
readings, the prayers, the hymns – all were all so inspiring. The last
hymn sung as the flag-draped coffin was carried out of the church was
the beautiful “Majesty and Power,” the first line of which is “A mighty
fortress is our God...”
Maybe I’m being too sentimental, but I couldn’t help but think how
wonderful it would be if present-day politicians could learn to be a bit
more like Gerald Ford was.
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
