It was so huge that it had to be held in an arena rather than in the nearby Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church where the massacre occurred.  Thousands filled the TD Arena as well as the streets around it.  The service was beautiful.

President Obama delivered the eulogy … but it was  so much more than that.  Somehow, it seemed to be the speech everyone has been waiting for over so many years.  Maybe it was a matter of this being the right place, time, and mood.

After the service, the many dignitaries were not whisked away hastily, but stayed around to offer their support to the families and friends.

In case you missed it >>>>>C-SPAN>>>>>>>>>>
