Cry No. 1 happened on Friday afternoon, in the White House’s Brady Briefing Room, during Obama’s initial statement on the Newtown massacre. Cry No. 2 took place two days later, on Sunday night, during his speech at a Newtown interfaith vigil. And cry No. 3 was just a few hours ago, during the funeral for legendary senator (and fellow Hawaiian) Daniel Inouye at the National Cathedral. Here’s hoping next week is a little easier.
