    First, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the families that lost family members or friends on September 11, 2001. May God be with you, and I hope the events of today helped to put some of your pain at ease. I trully admire our President. What a genuinely compassion­ate individual he is. He shook EACH AND EVERY PERSON’S HAND! I have NEVER seen this done before by any previous Presidents­. He is amazingly classy. I had the honor and great pleasure of meeting him on October 29, 2007 when he was still campaignin­g for President. And on that day, I had the total pleasure of shaking his hand and looking into his wonderfull­y compassion­ate eyes. I promise you, you can trully feel how genuine he is! God Bless Our President and God Bless America.
