When Reagan gave his speech the night of the Challenger disaster I knew he loved our astronauts and felt the sincere grief of our country.
When Clinton spoke about the Columbine murders it was clear his sorrow was sincere.
Bush understood the country’s horror at 9/11 and attempted to speak to us all in the immediate aftermath as a leader of all his citizens.
When Dylan Roof murdered those black parishioners or after Sandy Hook it was clear Obama felt genuine compassion for a grieving country.
