President's response to Connecticut Tragedy

Friday, December 14, 2012

I don't think I have ever been so moved by a speech by a public person. The president was obviously speaking from his heart and as a parent. Here is a link in case you haven't seen it.

    The simplicity and honesty of the president's speech were greatly affecting.

    I watched news coverage of the shooting since 11 am. I live not 40 minutes from Newtown. I was moved by the presdidents speech. The channel that I was listening to said that he cut the speech short because he was overcome with emotion. Lt. Vance, who I know personally, said grief counselors were brought in and it is mandatory for the first responders to see them. Many on the town police force had children in that school or knew of families that did. There is a rumor, not confirmed, that an officer broke down when he saw a body of a relative, a child in kindergarten. I don't understand what is happening in our country.
