3 Presidents, 3 Speeches

Last night I watched Obama’s address to the community of Newtown with tears in my eyes. It was a truly moving speech and I could tell that he wrote it himself, without relying on Whitehouse staff. Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama speeches in the wake of school shootings past and present are edited together to form a moving and telling remix that highlights the effects of gun violence and the role that leadership plays in taking responsibility to help end it. The source materials include presidential addresses immediately following the Columbine, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook shootings. The three speeches have been edited together here to illustrate the endless cycle of violence we are trapped in. How do you feel about this remix?
