I came across this link somewhere on Twitter—I don’t recall where, having opened the tab in the background and returned to it later. I started it thinking it would be a short clip, but it was the full speech, and once started, I couldn’t stop watching it. At the end, I actively had tears in my eyes. What a great speech it was, and what a great speaker President Obama is. Watching this today is such a stark reminder of how far our rhetoric has fallen, how vindictive and petty our White House is now. I long for our nation to get on to a road to healing.
