Absolute Master Speech, Sirji

This is a speech by Obama at the Tucson memorial commemorating the shooting which killed six people as well as severely wounding a US member of Congress. A speech that moved me--filling me with a heavy hearted, almost patriotic reverence for the hero who stopped the gunman from reloading as well as making me smile sadly as Obama recounted the dreams of 9 year old Christina-Taylor Gree who wanted to be the first woman to play on the Major League (Baseball?). This, in spite of the fact that I have no emotional investment in the Tucson Shooting whatsoever--I didn't even know how to pronounce 'Tucson' before this incident. Which just goes to show how good an orator this man is. Listen to the speech.
