This is one of the saddest, most disturbing tweets I've seen in some time:

"It's our lullaby." Breathtaking.

There are so many violence-based stories in the headlines these days, so bleak, so wrong, and how insane is that. Shattering lives at the point of a gun is becoming epidemic... spread by irrational fear and paranoia instead of disease.

Here's where Senator Murphy was tweeting from:

Sleepyhead, close your eyes.
Mother's right here beside you.
I'll protect you from harm,
You will wake in my arms.
Guardian angels are near,
So sleep on, with no fear.
Guardian angels are near,
So sleep on, with no fear.

 Sweet dreams, little ones.
