Heartbreaking News

Barack Obama is canceling nearly all his campaign events Thursday and Friday this week to fly to Hawaii to visit his suddenly gravely ill 85-year-old grandmother, his communications director said.

The Huffington Post

Robert Gibbs told reporters aboard Obama’s plane that Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, who helped raise him, was released from the hospital late last week. But he said her health had deteriorated “to the point where her situation is very serious.”

Heartfelt prayers go out to the Dunham and Obama families. We hold you all in our thoughts.
