On killing children . . .
by Patrick O'Brien
My love and prayers for the families in Sandy Hook, Connecticut . . .
“This evening, Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter and we’ll tell them that we love them, and we’ll remind each other how deeply we love one another. But there are families in Connecticut who cannot do that tonight. And they need all of us right now.” ~ President Obama
“This evening, parents around the world will hug their children a little tighter and tell them that they love them, and will remind each other how deeply that they love one another. But there are families in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Palestine (et al) who cannot do that tonight. And they need all of us right now.” ~ Humanity
