    Good Morning TODVille!

    My dad’s funeral was yesterday and it was a lovely celebration of his life and a wonderful send-off. The final hymn was one of his favorites, “Amazing Grace”. So I had that hymn going around in my head the rest of the day – but instead of hearing the female vocalist, my internal version was President Obama’s heartfelt rendition on a loop.🙂 To me, that will always and forever be the way that song should be sung. Thanks again to everyone on TOD for the kind messages about my dad – he would be astounded to hear that so many knew about him – at almost 88, the Internet quite bemused him!🙂

    I believe our Judith is at the White House today for the announcement.😉

    She works so hard on behalf of this administration. If she is indeed there no one deserves it more than her…..!!!!

    Ironic that while their president is trying to bring some sense in the gun insanity, yet another state goes insane and legalizes open carry. Great going texans.

      bs fear mongering headline from ap. typical. It was one dead and two wounded.

        Exactly. Plus the number of DAILY deaths in the US from gun violence far outweighs current casualties in US special forces in the Middle East.

          beebs peddled the same bs speculation too before the reality hit them and they posted the actual facts.

          At least these men and women SIGN UP to put their lives on the line every day…..I don’t recall those six year olds or the thousands gunned down signing up to be target practice to the mentally ill whose parents exercised their 2nd amendment rights to put a gun in their kids hands to make them feel better.

    Lord Jesus, I can’t stop crying. Our president’s broken heart and tears reflect those of thousands who have suffered the loss of loved ones to gun violence. May we reflect his courage and fierceness to get the job done of organizing, and voting, and fighting until this scourge becomes as rare as it is in other countries.
    I turned the T V off almost as soon as PBO finished speaking because George S. almost immediately starting talking about what the ass hole repub. candidates and so-called law makers (those who have passed no laws in 7 years) have to say. What kind of country is this that such avarice is put before our lives? My heart broke to see such a good, strong, loving man who has seen so much pain in the eyes of so many, shed such tears in public. I love this man so much and thank God everyday that He sent him to us and most of us were smart enough to receive him.

    The ATF only has 2,600 agents. The exact same number as it had in 1972.

    There will never be another like Barack Hussein Obama. He is sui generis.

    On another topic, this is what would happen if Bernie and his stans were to take over the Dems:

    I love my President, and I give thanks for him in my prayers daily. The tears are so painful. I know he will receive hugs from Valarie Jarret and VP Biden as soon as he arrives in the Oval Office from this announcement. You saw how Valerie was right behind him as he exited the room. No dearer or closer bond than FLOTUS to have beside him during a moment like this one. I wanted to jump through the screen and just hug him and tell him how much he is loved by all of us here. HZ
