President Obama To America - We all share in the American Dream

Friday, January 14, 2011
I agree with the President. Let us try to discuss these and other issues in a civil and humble manner.
But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together. - President Obama at the memorial service in Tucson
The reason I have not discussed the Tucson shootings is because everyone else has. Also, the evil that men do cannot always be contained by laws or "enhanced" security. Once again, this has proven to be sad but true.
