“You left and I cried tears of blood. My sorrow grows. It’s not just that You left. But when You left my eyes went with You. Now, how will I cry? — Rumi

Carryn Owens, the widow of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, was moved to tears at Donald Trump’s speech to a Joint Session of Congress as Trump praised her husband as a hero.
Her visible sorrow and grief was cause for a standing ovation for everyone including Donald Trump –president of the United States and the Commander in chief of the armed forces.
Many reporters are speculating that this very dramatic show of emotion was a direct result of the president ‘s word’s describing her husband as “a warrior and hero” who battled against terrorism in the valiant effort to secure the nation.
He described this tragic mission as “highly successful” which generated “large amounts of vital intelligence”. The truth behind this public announcement is still being scrutinized by the proper military officials.
Trump’s speech was speckled at times with vast amounts of data that insiders have correctly labelled as being “fake news’, simplistic exaggerations of statistics or dramatic hyperbole.
No matter how you define the event the grieving woman’s tears of sorrow lent an air of realism and humaneness to the presidential address.
It is hoped that Mr Trump will tune into the real world outside his bedroom world and appreciate the fact the sacrifices are being made by real people in a world subject to his easily signed signature on a sheet of presidential “fools”cap paper. — gc
