Mourning in America

Thousands of mourners are standing in line to pay their respects and show their gratitude to our fallen president while his casket is on view in California before it travels to Washington later today. The AP reports: “Crowds wait hours to view Reagan casket.”
The photo below depicts part of the line of mourners stretching approximately 1.5 miles at Moorpark College to board buses that will take them to see President Reagan’s flag-draped casket at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.
