This morning I was going to tell my daughters that they can do anything - the proof was going to be there on the screen. I was going to show them that bullies don't win, that hope is more powerful than fear. I was going to tell them that they live in a place that while far from perfect, is always striving to be so; that it learns form the mistakes of its past in an effort to become more free, more just and more fair. 

That's what I was going to tell them. Now I don't know what to say.
