During an emotional eulogy at the funeral for a pastor killed in the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, President Obama broke into song, leading the congregation in the classic Christian hymn, Amazing Grace.
“Clementa Pinckney found that grace,” Obama concluded. “Cynthia Hurd found that grace. Susie Jackson found that grace. Ethel Lance found that grace. DePayne Middleton-Doctor found that grace. Tywanza Sanders found that grace. Daniel L. Simmons, Sr. found that grace. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton found that grace. Myra Thompson found that grace.”
“Through the example of their lives, they’ve now passed it on to us,” he added. “May we find ourselves worthy of that precious and extraordinary gift, as long as our lives endure. May grace now lead them home.”
