Interfaith Assembly, and the President’s Speech

Obama Receives Praise for Interfaith Assembly Speech in Boston1

Praise for the President’s speech at Friday’s interfaith assembly in Boston has come from all over the world.  His words of encouragement and compassion were welcomed by victims, victim’s families, and people from all corners of the nation and the world.

President Obama’s opponent in the 2012 election, Mitt Romney, offered these words about the speech.

“I thought the president gave a superb address to the people of this city and the state and the nation,” the former Massachusetts governor said. “It was an inspiring day.”

Romney was invited by now Governor Deval Patrick.  Besides having been Governor of Massachusetts, Romney ran his presidential campaign from the city, and is presently chairman of a committee for the Boston-based Solamere Capital, the investment firm founded by his eldest son, Tagg.

Romney emphasized that authorities need to learn as much as possible from this tragedy to help prevent a future occurrence.

“This is a learning opportunity,” Romney said. “We should learn the lessons that come from this and apply them to the extent that we possibly can.”
