State Of The Union Preceded By Memoriam Reel Of Americans Lost In Past Year

WASHINGTON—Prior to President Obama’s annual State of the Union address Tuesday night, audience members in the House chamber were presented with a touching “In Memoriam” video in remembrance of all the Americans who died in 2012. “It was a fitting tribute to all those who were sadly taken away from us far too soon,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said shortly after the conclusion of the poignant video, in which photos and names of the 2.6 million deceased Americans who died in 2012 were shown one-by-one on a large screen as Judy Garland’s rendition of “Smile” played on the sound system. “We will certainly never forget their many contributions to our nation.” At press time, the segment had been heavily criticized for failing to include Layton, UT resident Jonathan Sonnen, Denver resident Sarah Kaplan, and Gore Vidal.
