    I can't help but feel terrible for his family. If I recall correctly, he's got young kids, and while they will be able to move on, they will never truly get over it. My dad died in 1986, when I was little over a year old, before my little sister was even born, and even after all these years, it's a big weight on my family. I wouldn't wish that grief on my worst enemy.

      And while it makes no sense to paint someone with the color of one brush stroke, it is only fair to state that many of his public actions were unworthy of any human being.

      It would be heartless to wipe away the rest of his identity, which was obviously loved and treasured by his family and friends.

      But let's not be hypocrites, either. It is fair to separate a man from his actions. Not to wish "ill" upon someone is a decent and worthwhile attribute. To despise their actions and deplore their behavior is also fair and appropriate when they have been cruel and abusive.

      To Andrew Brietbart: I hope that wherever you are, or wherever your spirit resides, you can comprehend that your words and actions in this life had consequences -- there were negative ramifications from those actions that impacted millions of people.

      May you be washed with the light of love and caring, and may you now intercede on behalf of those whom you hurt. This would be my hope for any of us, really, myself included.

      Now THAT's the president I voted for!
