McCain's casket carried into church for service - 8/30/2018 12:01:20 PM

Sen. John Mc Cain receives the applause from the audience before beginning a foreign policy address to the World Affairs Council in Los Angeles in March 2008 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. He talked about a collaborative foreign policy with input of alli

On Thursday, August 30, Bridget McCain read a Bible verse at her dad's memorial service at North Phoenix Baptist Church.

Dabbing his eyes early in his speech, Biden said the two men got to know each other while making overseas trips together. She said she was especially touched to see leaders from both sides of the aisle speaking, showing just how hard McCain worked to make a difference for all, with Republicans and Democrats.

Many might wonder what young African-American kid from Minnesota, and a highly decorated war hero turned United States Senator might have in common, he said. A single-file procession wound through the copper-domed capitol, where McCain's body lay in state. The program includes McCain's daughter, Meghan, giving a tribute to her father, his son Jimmy reading a poem, and another daughter, Sidney, reading a Bible passage.

Former Attorney General Grant Woods made fun of McCain for his "ridiculously bad driving".

Thousands of people gathered Thursday in Arizona for a memorial service for Sen.

Of the multiple photos from the event though, one of the most powerful was of McCain's daughter Meghan McCain, who broke down in tears as she approached her father's casket, covered with an American flag to honor his lifetime of service to his country.

"John McCain, through forgiveness, accomplished what we were unable to do with all our weapons of war", CBS News' Bob Schieffer said.

The church's senior pastor, Noe Garcia, pronounced McCain "a true American hero".

United States cuts almost $300 million in aid for Palestinian refugees
Palestinian leaders have cut contact with the US since the Trump administration backed Israel's claim of Jerusalem as its capital. Senior members of the Trump administration have been overtly critical of UNRWA, including national security adviser John Bolton.

Biden said McCain "could not stand the abuse of power wherever he saw it, in whatever form, in whatever country".

"I've also thought of John as a brother", Biden continued, explaining how close the two men were. "That took my son Beau's life - is brutal, relentless, unforgiving", Biden said. Pence sat next to his widow, Cindy McCain, during the ceremony.

As always, there was plenty of ribbing about the senator, who was known for his passionate politics and often stubborn personality. McCain stood out during the last two years as a key rival and critic of U.S. President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican whom McCain's family has asked not to attend the funeral.

Touching on his own losses, of his first wife and daughter, who died in a auto accident in 1972, and his son Beau in 2015, he counseled the McCain family on how to soldier on through their grief, and compared loss to "being sucked into a black hole inside your chest". Twenty-four sitting US senators, four former senators and other leaders were among those expected at Thursday's memorial.

Sen. McCain is also survived by his wife, Cindy, and seven children. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call) McCain's casket lies in state in the Capitol Rotunda on Friday.

After Thursday's church service, a military aircraft was scheduled to take McCain's body back east for a lying-in-state at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, a service at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, and burial at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

Several firefighters are standing on top of a firetruck on an overpass above a Phoenix freeway saluting a motorcade with a hearse carrying Sen. "I am a Democrat, but I love this man because he brings honour to just being a man". As many as 15,000 members of the public waited in line for hours, as temperatures climbed above 100F, to pay their respects.

The poll from Public Policy Polling found that 61 percent of Arizona voters want Ducey to appoint someone in McCain's mold to fill his seat until 2020, while 37 percent want the replacement to be more like President Trump.
