Barack Sheds A Tear For Grandmom

Sen. Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, died yesterday in Hawaii, she was 86 years old. Obama made the following statement last night while campaigning in Charlotte, N.C.:

“She’s gone home.” “And she died peacefully in her sleep with my sister at her side. And so there is great joy as well as tears. I’m not going to talk about it too long because it is hard for me to talk about.”

Obama's grandmother of course died one day before her grandson is poised to make history as the first African American President. Obama is clearly on a mission, and is grieving in his own way as millions of Americans pray for him and his family.

I Love a man that can cry and his voice not quiver and his focus not change.
