Obama’s Speech in Tucson

Just read the text of Obama’s speech in Tucson, and I take back everything snarky that I wrote in my prior post re references to prayer by politicians.  Yes, I was thinking, when I wrote that earlier post, about Sarah Palin’s references to prayer, more than Obama’s, but I still take it all back.   In the interests of not criticizing anybody (in the aftermath of Obama’s speech), I probably should just remove the post.

The text of Obama’s speech is incredibly moving; his references to scripture and prayer and life and death are poetic and beautiful and comforting and wise.    Here’s hoping people hear him.

 

PS – Here’s the link to the video of the truly wonderful speech.
