Comforter-in Chief

President Obama arrived in Newtown, Connecticut today to meet with families who lost their sons, daughters, wives, friends and with first responders.

At a community vigil, he offered words, our words, of comfort and promise to move ahead to understand and act to address this horrible cultural norm of gun violence.

 “Can we say that we're truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose? I've been reflecting on this the last few days,” the president said, somber and steady in his voice. “And if we're honest with ourselves, the answer is no. We're not doing enough and we will have to change,” said President Obama.

We all will have to work to make our nation – a nation with more guns than citizens – a nation of peace and security for all, security that protects all citizens, especially Kindergarteners.
