Barack Obama’s Eulogy For Charleston Victims Is Amazing, Graceful (Video)

Friday was an astonishing news day — it started with the Supreme Court rewriting the map of “states where gay marriage is legal.” And then midday, while we were all still euphoric over that, President Obama gave his eulogy for Rev.
