Wonderful speech !

Yes ... very moving and deferential ... I cried.

I cried too, but it was more out of pride for what was accomplished through sacrifice. courage, and struggle.

It was very emotional for me, too. What a beautiful ceremony and remembrance. Speech was excellent. I loved watching the aftermath, smiles, hugs, etc. and the music following the speech. (cspan) Such a bittersweet moment in our history.

I was there and saw it sabotaged ... two names (actually three) are etched in my mind ...

{#emotions_dlg.angry} I'm certain I wouldn't be surprised.

I came now to post a photo at the bridge, but I don't want them to come back.

I've always said there are a lot of buts.
