President Obama held a brief press conference wiping tears from his eyes informing families that were victimized today that the country is here for them.  He stated, “our hearts are broken today.” The President spoke about the loss of young children ranging in ages from 5 -10 years of age who had their future in front of them.  He talked about hugging his own daughters a little closer today when they arrive home.  His tears explained how deep he felt for this great loss in our country and community today.

All parents will be hugging and keeping their children close today as our nation grasp the enormity of this tragic event. We are praying for all the victims and children that survived as we learn more.
