Pres. Obama's Speech At Fort Hood Was Beautiful

It really was. He said all the right things in all the right ways. Believe it or not I do like to write good things about him. I really do want him to do the right things. Every single night, since he became President, my children and I have prayed for God to bless him.

Here are some excerpts from his speech:

On the killer:

"No faith justifies these murderous and craven acts; no just and loving God looks upon them with favor. And for what he has done, we know that the killer will be met with justice -- in this world and the next."

On the soldiers who died:

"Their lives speak to the strength, the dignity and the decency of those who serve, and that is how they will be remembered."

To loved ones left behind:

"Here is what you must also know: Your loved ones endure through the life of our nation. Every evening that the sun sets on a tranquil town; every dawn that a flag is unfurled; every moment that an American enjoys life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness -- that is their legacy,"

Beautiful. I cry just writing it. A fitting tribute.

God bless those who are hurting.

Here is the full video of his speech for those who missed it.
