Remarks prepared for delivery. Days like this are among the most difficult we face. We struggle to find meaning in such a tragic accident. We struggle to find the words to measure the men we have lost, and what that loss means to their families, to our FBI Family, and to each of us personally. It has been said that valor is a gift. Those who have it never know for sure until the test comes. ...
"Simon Birch" is about a little boy who believes God intends for him to someday be a hero. Because this is a Hollywood film, we know that his day as hero will arrive before the final reel is over, but unfortunately, his heroic deed turns out to be so strikingly conventional that it is ultimately a let-down (and the atrociously bad deathbed scene that follows doesn't help matters).

Atlanta LeaderAtlanta Leader – Local Atlanta News & Georgia Headlines
The Atlanta Leader is essentially a local Atlanta newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Atlanta, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Atlanta, Georgia, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Atlanta Leader.
