On her Facebook page, Rose Backs of Coeur d'Alene discusses what she saw while sitting in the parking lot of Coeur d'Alene's Fred Meyer Friday: “A man pulls in and is waiting for a spot close to the door to open. He is blocking a portion of the driveway and cars have to maneuver around him. The other cars are belligerent and are honking and yelling at him. He pulls away and takes a spot a little further down the aisle. He calmly stepped out of the car, one prosthetic leg at a time. The American Flags on his legs stood out most to me. I'm only sharing because it made my heart hurt a little to see.”
