Logan & Abigail Evans

I am so heartbroken for and impressed with young Logan Evans.
When Majority Leader Schumer spoke about Logan's father, the little boy looked right at him, and nodded in understanding.

Speaker Pelosi acknowledged Logan and Abigail, with their stuffed support animals and toy capital squishies. When Abigail dropped her foam Capitol, THE PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES picked it up, like just another mom at the play group.

As the President speaks directly to Officer Evans mother, I have hope we a a nation will heal.

The compassion and humanity emanating from this Administration in light of these horrific murders of Capital Police Officers shows Biden's commitment to the battle for America's soul.

I ache for those two kids, and Mrs Evans, and hope this is the last Capitol police officer who lays in honor.

1. Seeing Logan wearing his dad's...

...hat is reducing me to a sobbing mess.

2. Indeed

It's as searing as three year old John F. Kennedy, Jr. in his short pants, saluting as his father's casket passed.

He looks at the President and the other speakers with such open, earnestness.

How old is young Logan?

4. Sadder, IMO, because Logan is old enough to understand...

...what has happened.

11. How awful for you. If my words came across suggesting that John Jr's loss was less...

...significant because he was 3, I do apologize, as that is not at all what I meant.

Although the understanding of death does vary with a childís age, the lifelong effects of losing a parent early in life obviously do not.

Again, I apologize for expressing myself badly.

8. Talk about timing. I could not hear it, as we...

...are having our entryway floor refinished, and the sanding machine is blasting away. I think I am selfishly glad of that. It will likely be available online later, and I will likely watch.
