During his first joint address to Congress Tuesday night, President Donald Trump honored the sacrifice and service of slain Navy SEAL Ryan Owens. He also recognized his widow Carryn, who received an extended standing ovation from the audience.

"We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William 'Ryan' Owens. Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero –- battling against terrorism and securing our Nation," President Trump said. "Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom –- we will never forget him."

As the room focused on her, Carryn looked toward the ceiling and said through tears, "I love you." It was no doubt the most powerful moment of the night.
