<p>Anchoring the <em>CBS Evening News</em> for a third-straight night in Paris following Friday&rsquo;s deadly Islamic terror attacks, Scott Pelley concluded Wednesday&rsquo;s broadcast with an emotional commentary looking back at how parents so often struggle to discuss tragedies over the past two decades with their children while some are also crippled by grief of losing loved ones in the events themselves.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Pelley started rather simple with a few opening thoughts interspersed with pictures and video of parents with their children at various memorials set up around Paris:<strong> &ldquo;This week, parents looked at the questions on the faces of their children and did their best to make sense of the senseless. How to explain? What is the meaning of life if life is lost so easily to those who hate?&rdquo;</strong></p>
