Historical significance beyond Hillary

On a post on his Facebook page, Dan Rather writes powerfully and likens Khizr Khan’s speech at the DNC and his questions to Donald Trump as a moment of historical significance akin to the “Have you no sense of decency sir?” question Joseph Welch put to Senator Joe McCarthy during the Army-McCarthy hearings in 1954.  I think he’s right. It was a breathtaking moment for Khan’s display of courageous patriotism.  If you’re not sure what I’m referring to, check it out:

I cried during this speech and still choke up over it. I cannot imagine how these parents were able to get through this but God.Bless.Them!

Anyone else with me on this?
