President Obama's Speech

I didn't get to see this live, but I take a great deal of heart in what he said. It was moving to see not only the victims memorialized, but the heroes get their due. So often these people do their deeds in complete anonymity. God bless us all.

I've not seen the full speech but bits on the BBC news. From what I heard, I thought the President's words were very moving and touching. I especially like what he said of little Christina Taylor Green. Take care

He seems like a good guy. We need more of those!

It was moving on a number of levels. He is a good guy, but it's rare for him to show emotion, and to see him moved by Christina-Taylor Green was heartening and, dare I say, healing. I never met her, but she was a great kid taken before her time.

And I'm still thinking about the recognition he gave to the people who stopped the shooter, and to Gabrielle Giffords's intern, who kept her alert and kept pressure on her wound, possibly saving her life.

I just hope that out of all of this, our country can come together a bit and move forward. I think this speech will help us do that.
