In Memoriam: Tim Russert, Meet The Press


            “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

In a very elaborate memorial service at the Kennedy Center on June 18, 2008, many important people gathered to honor Tim Russert, including the President of the United States.  He was a man beloved and respected. 

At the end of service, they played a version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and as they left the church there was a double rainbow in the sky.

“Outside, rain and a rumble of thunder fell over the Potomac River location of the Kennedy Center.

But, like the sunny disposition and optimism that friends time and again invoked at the memorial service, there was a silver lining in the dark clouds.

A large, bright rainbow shone over Washington, greeting mourners who left the Kennedy Center. “

And so in this way God smiled and said, “Good job, Tim”.  What a tribute!

Repost in honor of the first Sunday of Meet The Press without Russert.  As his son said, I guess he’s doing Meet The Press in heaven today.
