    This will be so poignant. I was hoping he would do something like this and I’m so glad to see he will. I believe Thursday will be a huge step toward America’s healing. This President is the one to lead us there.

    I just listened to President Obama speak a few minutes ago at a previously White House Bi-Partisan Congressional Dinner and He talked about unity and togetherness. He also talked about never forgetting those who lost loved ones on 9/11 at the hands of a MONSTER. He said that he has no illusions that there wouldn’t be disagreements with congress and the White House in the coming months on budget bills and the like, but this moment reminded him of all Americans and people all over the world coming together to offer healing on 9/11, the Tucson shooting and the hurricanes that have ravaged the South. Gosh what a MAN and what a PRESIDENT… always humble and gracious.

    At the dinner, he is sitting next to Rusty Boehner.. ewwwwwwww.. but at least the First Lady is present at the dinner and Nancy Pelosi is at the table.

    THIS WILL BE A HEART WARMING GATHERING FOR THE PRESIDENT AND FOR THESE FAMILIES. OUR COMFORTER-IN-CHIEF WILL BE SO WELCOMED BY MANY WHO WILL FOREVER SUFFER FROM THE PAIN OF LOST LOVED ONES IN THIS TRAGEDY. HE IS PROBABLY VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS MEETING.
