President Obama addressed the tragedy during remarks at the White House Friday afternoon “our hearts are broken” for the families of the victims in the deadly mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. The president, paused repeatedly, struggling to get through his remarks. His eyes welled up as he discussed the victims.
The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.
The president, hinting at possible legislation, pledged “meaningful action” to prevent more killings in the future.1
