Thank you, Mr. President. Warm words are most welcoming now and your voice has always been one of calm, reassuring wisdom.

I believe America thrives in the midst of a crisis or challenge. God knows we have certainly seen our share of them. And I believe we will rise above this, we will seek common ground and once again become a light in the darkness.

This is now part of our story. And oh, what I fantastic story we have. I hope our children will tell this part of our story someday as another example of how we rose up together and met this challenge as we have so many others.
