Why President Obama Should Attend Hadiya Pendleton's Funeral

by Alonzo Brooklyn

Mr. President, I never thought I would say this, but your wife going by herself to that funeral is simply not good enough. You showed all kinds of emotion when the children were killed in Newtown, CT, which you should have.  But here is a young, beautiful, Christian girl from your own backyard, who danced in front of you at your inauguration, and you won't go and hug these people, comfort them, be a blessing to them, and allow the whole world to see it. Mr. President, you owe it to God, to that family, to your home community, and to the nation, to go and hug these dear people, weep with them, cry with them, and support them just like you did for the dear people in Newtown, CT. And if you don't do so, I believe you will live to regret it. 

Quite frankly, Mr. President, if you do not attend this particular funeral, especially in light of the hundreds of young people and children who have died before this young angel, it would be unforgivable
