Saw this on LSA.
And this is interesting.
thanks for this, not that it was important, but every parent is feeling this all over this country.. i saw those tears on TV.. every parent knows this could have been their kids, and that's why it scares us.. the thought of going thru what these parents had to endure last night going in that building to identify your dead bloody baby we are all touched.. you'd have to be cold hearted to have not been affected by this..not to mention he's had to go to a couple of these types of horrible incidents in his term..

I didn't say much last night because I was a bit in shock on why anyone would want to be so myopic about an irrelevant point, but today I want to speak my peace.
Everyone has their right to dislike the POTUS he is a public figure and depending on your position he may or may not be someone you can support. However, he is a Father, and moreover a human being. And if we as random people who have no vested interest in these little children, can feel the gut wrenching pain and despair for their lives being lost, what in the world would make anyone think that he wouldn't have the same feelings?
So if you don't break down with tears flowing, snot bubbles running, you aren't sincere?
And this doesn't require a response nor a quote...I just had to let it out.

Girl raised in Winnipeg among Newtown shooting victims
KEVIN ENGSTROM, QMI Agency
WINNIPEG - A Winnipeg girl is among the victims of Friday's shooting rampage in Connecticut.
Ana Marquez-Greene, 6, and her older brother Isaiah attended Linden
Christian School in Linden Woods, before moving with their parents to
Newtown in July and enrolling at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the
fall. Both children were inside the school when the shooter opened fire.
Ana was among the 20 children killed in the mass shooting. Her
brother, reportedly a Grade 3 student, escaped without physical harm.
Eight adults were also killed, including the suspected gunman, Adam Lanza.
Linden School principal Robert Charach said he was told of Ana's death Friday afternoon.
"It's a tragedy," said Charach, noting staff held a prayer session
late Friday afternoon for all victims of the shooting. "But to actually
know someone who died in this, it personally takes it to a new level."
Charach said counsellors will be on hand Monday for students who knew the family.
The children's father is American jazz saxophonist Jimmy Greene.
According to his online biography, Greene and his family spent the past
three years in Winnipeg while he worked as a faculty member with the
University of Manitoba's school of music. His wife, Nelba, is a
therapist who worked at the University of Winnipeg's Aurora Family
"We're all absolutely reeling at the news," a Winnipeg-based friend of the family told QMI Agency late Friday.
About 60 people attended a vigil for the Marquez-Greene family Friday
night at Whyte Ridge Baptist Community Church, where the family were
parishoners during their time in Winnipeg.
"They were a nice family," an unidentified pastor told QMI Agency as people prayed behind him.
Others expressed condolences to the family via Twitter.
"My prayers and heart go out to my brother, Mr. Jimmy Greene. Your
loss cannot be compared. I'm praying for you and your family," Christian

You are so right Jewelnyc, it was totally irrelevant for what was happening at the time.. I left took a bath, washed my hair and braided it came back and it was still going on...He don't have to prove anything that he cares about kids, you can go back and find that over and over again.. He's a father, he caught hell for speaking on Travon's death, b/c he relates as a Parent.. every parent is feeling this horrible crime against children and to make this about anything other this the lost of children was a non-moffo factor..
