Regardless of Obama's political views, I feel incredibly sad that his beloved grandmother died before Election Day. Whether he wins or loses, seeing her grandson as the Democratic nominee on Election Day would have been a great joy to her I am sure and I am sorry that she didn't live to see her grandson on Election Day. And should Obama win, his happiness at victory will be overshadowed by the tragic lose of his beloved grandmother.
I don't attempt to understand the timing God has in these things, but I honestly can't help wondering "Why not one more day God?".
My sincerest prayers for the entire Obama family as they deal with the loss of their loved one. May God comfort them and guide them in the days to come. May she rest in peace.
