Fallen Officer Darren Goforth's Son Wins the Internet. The Touching Story Behind The Shirt...
Today is the funeral for Darren Goforth, the Texas Deputy who was assassinated. A lot of the coverage has been focused on how the incendiary anti-cop #BlackLivesMatter rhetoric may have led to his death. Then of course, you have people who are cheering it on, like this walking piece of steaming, human excrement.
While we have our usual political arguments on Twitter, it's easy to forget that a wife lost her husband, a son lost his father, and a police officers across the country lost their brother. Many of whom are good men. Decent men.
This photo sums up the day...

Deputy Goforth & son had bought Cpt America shirts together, never got to wear them. Both wearing them today. #DeputyDarrenGoforth

Hey little man, just so you know, there are people out there who appreciate your dad. We get that you're being strong for mom, and you've had to grow up overnight. Stay in there.
Excuse me, I think I have something stuck in my contact lens while I was peeling onions.
Nah, screw it. I'm crying. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME!
