I teared up as soon as my son Colin texted me that the Newtown elementary school mass killings had happened just over the bridge from West Point in CT.
My heart broke and yet as the morning grinded on, my tears began to halt...
Until President Obama teared up.
He almost kept his composure. I simply did not.
This is not the time to disagree on the puniness of politics.
It is the time to grieve together as a nation.
Differing solutions will most assuredly be offered.
Only one problem, however, is in front of us today - at this very moment.
It is the loss of life - of kids, sweet babies and little elementary schooled kids.
America is not sick.
America's tears prove that today.
The young man who killed these little children was sick.
May God bless the families who grieve today and for the rest of their lives.
Thank you President Obama for being real.
And by your action inviting all Americans to cry with you.
This is how we who love babies feel.
All innocent life is precious. We weep with you, Mr. President.
