Here’s the thing about Barack Obama. He can look just as solemn and intense staring at a souvenir football, as he did this afternoon,
as he can when staring at an eternal flame at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, as he did this morning.
So today he met Elie Wiesel and other Holocaust survivors, and also the Fighting Falcons, and gave speeches to both. See if you can tell which excerpts are from which speech:
And most of all, we are honored to be in the presence of men and women whose lives are a testament to the endurance and the strength of the human spirit -- the inspiring survivors.
Even when they were dogged by injuries, this team pulled together when it mattered most.
These guys faced a brutal schedule, but they never backed down.
despite all the tanks and all the snipers, all the torture and brutality unleashed against them, the Syrian people still brave the streets.
As Coach Calhoun said, “This group had a warrior spirit in them.”
To stare into the abyss, to face the darkness and insist there is a future -- to not give up, to say yes to life, to believe in the possibility of justice.
These guys toughed it out
So God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.
and God bless Air Force.
