'Our hearts are broken'

This is a headline I see more than any other in today's newspapers. It's a line from Obama's comments. I'm so glad we have a president who can so eloquently, and with empathy, say how our country feels.

I know we tend to over idolize the presidency - but in moments like this, it certainly can offer calmness in what otherwise feels like a chaotic world.

1. That's certainly the one thing about President Obama, he relates to kids. They love him and


the feeling is very obviously mutual. I can imagine that he is in turmoil on the insides. Just thinking about his own daughters and what he would feel like if something ever happened to one of them.
