  • ♪♪ (bagpipes playing) ♪♪

  • Narrator: On Wednesday, the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden traveled to

  • Cambridge, Massachusetts to attend the memorial service

  • for slain MIT Police Officer Sean Collier.

  • The Vice President: Why this terrorist phenomenon at the beginning of the 21 century?

  • Why do they do what they do?

  • They do it to instill fear.

  • To have us in the name of our safety and security jettison

  • what we value most and the world most values about us...

  • our open society; our system of justice that guarantees freedom;

  • the access of all Americans to opportunities;

  • the free flow of information and people across this country;

  • our transparency, that's their target.

  • It infuriates them that we refuse to bend,

  • refuse to change, refuse to yield to fear.

  • The doctrine of hate and oppression they found out

  • cannot compete with the values of openness and inclusiveness.

  • (helicopter whir)

  • Narrator: Later, Dr. Biden made the short trip across the Charles River to

  • the Marathon Memorial Site in Copley Square.

  • Here she left flowers and a pair of running shoes in honor of the

  • Bush's Presidential Library and Museum, the George W.

  • Bush Policy Institute, and the Offices of the George W.

  • Bush Foundation.

  • The President: It's impossible to truly understand the nature of

  • the job until it's yours.

  • Until you're sitting at that desk.

  • And the first thing I found in that desk the day I took office

  • was a letter from George and one that demonstrated his compassion

  • and his generosity.

  • For he knew that I would come to learn what he had learned...

  • that being President, above all, is a humbling job.

  • Narrator: The President and First Lady then traveled to Waco

  • to remember the victims of last week's fertilizer plant

  • at a memorial service held on the campus of Baylor University.

  • The President: We may not all live here in Texas but we're neighbors, too.

  • (applause)

  • see complete videos of these events, go to WhiteHouse.gov.
