It would be nice if people would say who they are when they leave reviews. This could be the same person giving many reviews

    Decent until you realize when it was given

    The text of this speech is ok, but nothing fantastic. The worst part is that it was given at a memorial and this is a rally type of speech. Totally disrespectful to the fallen and filled with standard campaign talk of "bringing the nation together as long as they come to our side" type of stuff.

    just another campaign speech.

    As someone who lives just minutes from where this tragedy occured, I was insulted at how this "pep rally" memorial was conducted. Commemorative t-shirts and campaign high fives and now a book. Wrong speech at the wrong time.
