Speaking Up

What a glorious speech!

That was our first reaction to President Obama’s eulogy for Reverend Clementa Pinckney yesterday. It was thought provoking and addressed issues that have long faced our country.

We can only hope that the momentum in the aftermath of this horrifying tragedy will continue until we can solve this issues and prevent future senseless tragedies from happening. We know that it’s not realistic to think that all tragedies will not magically stop. We, as a country, have a long and challenging road ahead of us—but hopefully we are now on the road to true recovery for all people who call this great country home.

We found some great pictures online at the Huffington Post with some memorable quotes from his speech.
