  •  After Oklahoma City, I cried for days. (14+ / 0-)

    Couldn't stop thinking about those children in the daycare center, and those poor parents.

    After 9/11, I cried again for many days -- especially because of all the pictures of the missing that were posted in the city.

    I've been crying again, but this time it's for more than those precious children and those heroic adults.

    Now I weep for this nation. She has truly lost her way. Sometimes the only thing that does give me hope is this:
    there were enough Americans who could see their way to electing Barack Obama president -- twice.

    Can we go further toward sanity and progress? Or will we remain stuck in this terrible place?
