Obama Delivers Hope to Joplin

Hey everybody,

Eight days after Ellie performed a dance on the stage at Taylor Auditorium in Joplin (so much has changed), President Barack Obama delivered a passionate and poignant message to Joplinites: "Your country will be there every step of the way," Obama said. "The cameras may leave; the spotlight may shift. But we will be with you every step of the way."

My favorite moment was when the President commented on heroes. "Heroes are all around us. They're in orange vests [speaking of the home depot employee who lost his life ushering others to safety], they take our orders, ..." and so on. It made me teary hearing again, as the President recounted them, the heroic stories I've heard all week.
I love this image because it conveys a feeling of hope.
And this image shows the President's passion as he promises the city of Joplin that the government will not forget about them in the weeks and months to come.
Obama visits Joplin

Stay strong,
