I would ask you this, when your criticism mounts,
do you remember your own tears?
When President Obama shows real tears,
is there a moment when we wonder about ourselves,
when human nature responds with emotion,
we enjoy, we love, we relish the opportunity
to point out our weak society.
When the Newtown tragedy was discussed in your own home,
were there tears, do you remember,
did you block that part out only because you couldn’t possibly
agree with the truth?
Do you remember the first time your mother told you it is ok,
To cry in public,
to recognize we are human beings and sadness when on display
could be powerful beyond display.
Do you understand passion, I believe President Obama wants you to.
Think about your last cry, and honor the beauty of peace
of mind and body.
Think about what leadership means when emotion is honorable.
