No matter what your politics are, you'd be hard pressed to not feel sad to know that Tory Leader David Camerons six year old son, Ivan, died today. After suffering from cerebral palsy for his short life his family must be heartbroken, as we all would be, in these dreadful circumstances.
The loss of a child is the worst thing that anyone can deal with..and even harder in the public eye.
It's a sad time, and one which will haunt the rest of their lives. Life will never be he same again in the Cameron household and no matter how challenging life was , this will be even more difficult to deal with.
It's days like this when you count your own blessings, don't you.
