Obama’s speech in Tucson

I didn’t watch President Obama’s speech tonight, but I just read it, and I cried. Powerful stuff.

I love these words:

And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy, but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.
