Barack Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died this afternoon, the day before Election Day.
My heart goes out to him. I know, she was 86 years old, and in poor health, but even so, one is never quite prepared for this kind of thing when it happens.
I understand that God has a plan for all of us, but couldn’t He have waited just one more day to take her home? I know that wherever she is right now, she is certainly watching over her grandson, and she sees what is happening in his life. If he wins tomorrow, I’m sure she will be celebrating with her daughter at his victory. Still, how wonderful it would have been for him to see his grandmother’s joy for himself. Now, he will never get that chance.
