ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Dallas Police Chief David Brown recited Stevie Wonder at the memorial for five fallen police officers killed in last week's sniper attack. "Families close your eyes and imagine me back in 1974 with an Afro and bell bottoms," said Brown as the crowd clapped before he recited lyrics from Stevie Wonder. "Change your words into truth and then change that truth into love. And maybe your children's grandchildren and their great great grandchildren will tell them I'll be loving you." President Obama who took the stage following Brown's remarks jokingly said, "Chief Brown, I'm so glad I met Michelle first because she loves Stevie Wonder."
