The Valiant Man - A Sad and Fitting Farewell Fifty Years Ago Today

  So when a great man dies,
  For years beyond our ken,
The light he leaves behind him lies
  Upon the paths of men.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Fifty years ago today the greatest man of our age, Sir Winston Churchill, died at the age of  90.  This moving video made by Mr. Gregory Benton, author of the thoughtful and beautiful Piddingworth blog, is a fitting tribute to the great man and includes scenes from his state funeral on January 30, 1965.
