Presidential Tragedy Reaction
"My fellow Americans,
I am here talking to you again today because we have finally reached the light at the end of the tunnel. This has been a hard month's time for all of us. Our way of life has been under attack. Lives have been lost senselessly at the hands of those despise us for our mere existence. They have sought to sow fear and dissention. They have even tried to foment sedition among our defenders.
I tremble at what has transpired to the people of our glorious nation. You have seen it. I trembled. It was not with fear though. It was not with sadness, though I carry as heavy heart as any. I have not lost any close to me, but as someone with great empathy I feel the suffering of those that have lost someone. Still I tremble, and it is with great anger that I tremble. We have not stood idle. These profaners of all that is decent, with their umbral intentions, expected us to sit idle. They expected us to be passive. They expected wrong.
Today these contemptible individuals have discovered just what happens when America's protectors leap into action. They have learned the hard way that are no better combined police forces the world over than ours. They have learned that justice is swift and exacting in America. They have learned that you can't escape the long arm of the law.
Local and federal police forces have captured those responsible for this month's tragedy. Several of the perpetrators were killed in the raid, but those in charge of these heinous acts have been captured alive and await trial. They expect that their fancy, expensive lawyers will keep them free and operational. Their execrable machinations are just that, the utterly detestable actions of the abhorrent. We are a nation of laws. Laws that do not allow for atrocities, and do not allow those that perform them to escape with loopholes and obfuscating rhetoric. Just as they did not get away with their violence and mayhem, they will not get away with flouting the justice system either.
The nightmare is over. It will take us time to recover, but we will. It will take us time to heal our hearts, but this too we will. Good night and God speed, America."
