    You made me proud. You showed empathy and made many of us feel better. Thank you.

    Yes...it was a very moving speech.

    I think he was fighting back tears the whole time too...I could hear it in his voice from the beginning.

    Awwwww....

    That is not the impression I had. I thought it was a good speech. I liked the way he talked about talking in a way that heals, not wounds. And I liked that he challenged us to live up to Christina's expectations.

    His finest moment, no doubt.

    He nailed it, and didn't use it for any agenda other than to heal and move forward.

    This was, by far, the most Presidential he has ever been.

    The speech left me with a feeling of hope, that maybe, just maybe, we can be united, instead of divided.
