As an American, I am of course deeply grateful to Their Majesties and Highnesses for their kindness and compassion. However, with all respect to those who may feel differently, it is my belief that Mr. Obama does bear some responsibility for this and like incidents. Many of his actions, attitudes, and public statements have increased, rather than decreased, social and political polarization here in the U.S. And he has signally failed even to address, much less to effectively engage, the sources and motivations of this and other attacks. I do not feel that this is the time or place to get more specific, so suffice it to say that I am grateful to our Royal friends abroad, and pray for better government at home.
