Aretha Franklin, RIP
I’m not an overly sentimental person, but this made me tear up a little.
A great American artist.
A great American singer-songwriter.
A great American president and first lady.
And they all come together in a mutual show of love and respect.
It’s a poignant reminder of what we’ve lost, but more importantly, it’s a reminder that greatness is always within our grasp — and that history teeters on a knife edge, with fear on one side and hope on the other.
God bless America. God bless Aretha Franklin.
Rest in peace, Queen of Soul.
