“This is our first task — caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we are meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children — all of them — safe from harm? Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know that they are loved, and teaching them to love in return? Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer is no. We’re not doing enough. And we will have to change.” - president barak obama
i think you have handled this whole tragedy very well so far. i am thankful for the leadership you have provided during these days. i want to believe you really mean what you say, and i do believe you think you mean it. but until your stance on the legalization and enabling of the murder of over 3,000 children every day changes, your words will ring hollow in my ears.
i pray that when you say “we will have to change”, that you really mean it.
i will continue to pray for you & your family, as well as your role as my president. may the lord grant you wisdom & knowledge as you lead this country. may you embrace your created purpose (which is the same as mine and all of god’s creation),which is to bring him glory in all that you do.
