Consoling Families, Town, Nation


We bear a responsibility for every child.
Our first task is caring for our children.
If we don’t get that right,
we don’t get anything right.

Newton,
We have wept with you.
Newtown,
You are not alone.

This is from the speech Obama gave at the Newtown memorial Service on Sunday night.  There’s nothing more I can say, except bring back the ban on assault rifles.
