In what may be THE race speech of his white House years, President Obama addressed the nation today at the memorial for five fallen Dallas police officers.
The president spoke often of keeping an "open heart" when it comes to seeing and hearing our fellow Americans. Truly a speech focused squarely on the unity of a nation.
“Today, in this audience, I see people who have protested on behalf of criminal justice reform grieving along police officers. I see people who mourn from the five officers we lost, but also weep for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. In this audience, I see what’s possible.
