Our President's Memorial Speech In Arizona
President Obama was receiving pressure from his own political party to capitalize on the unfortunate Arizona killings for political gain, he understood that America didn't need any divisiveness and collectively needed to heal. His speech last night was one of the best speeches I've heard from any president since I've been alive. He wasn't petty and cynical, rather than search for political victims to chastise he focused his speech on the victims, the heroes, and their families. Read full text of the president's speech (here).
