I want to get up in front of the cameras at the White House press room today and say this:
"When Christopher Lane was first shot I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Christopher Lane could have been me 35 years ago. When you think about why in our country at least there is a lot of pain around what happened here I think it is important to recognize that the country is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away."
Regards, Pete Weldon
