President Obama's eulogy and evident emotion are very touching. I wish all of America could see this video and listen to these words.

God bless Dr. Height. May she rest in peace. God embraces her now.

She was a great woman, Kelly. To think that she died at 98 with in sound mind and spirit is awesome. She was witness to so very much and helped to change the course of our history. Many of our mothers did not live to see President Obama as president. But, oh, we are so blessed that she fought for the heart and soul of America to indeed make it a more perfect union as mentioned in the eulogy. I have known of Dr. Height my entire life and I, like you, "wish all of America could see this video and listen to these words." Thank you, my friend. Peace and love to you...
