DO YOU LIVE in a community where motorists still pull to the side of the road out of respect for the dead and those in mourning?
Late this afternoon, as the Parker-Kohl Funeral Home hearse passed my house followed by a trail of vehicles with lights flashing, motorists driving along Willow Street, an arterial road through Faribault, pulled to the curb.
That would be drivers traveling in both directions.
In that moment, I felt a deep sense of gratitude for these folks who could have hurried along their way, but stopped instead.
Thank you. Today you make me especially proud of this community I call home.
