Watch: Dallas Police Memorial Service

ABC NEWS– President Barack Obama, speaking in Dallas this afternoon to a community — and a nation — reeling from last week’s deadly sniper attack, said Americans must reject despair during these tough times.

“We turn on the TV or surf the internet, and we can watch positions harden and lines drawn and people retreat to their respective corners,” he said at the Morton Meyerson Symphony Center. “Politicians calculate how to grab attention or avoid the fallout. We see all this, and it’s hard not to think sometimes that the center won’t hold. And that things might get worse. I understand. I understand how Americans are feeling. But, Dallas, I’m here to say we must reject such despair.”
ABC’S Andrea Bankert reports.
