LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- "I come to offer the love and prayers of a nation," President Barack Obama said in Newtown, Connecticut, Sunday. It's a city coping with unimaginable grief after 26 schoolchildren and teachers died during a shooting spree on Friday.
"Newtown, you are not alone," the president said, promising assistance and prayers for the stricken city. He said the teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary acted as anyone would hope to act, "giving their lives for the children in their care."
Obama continued: "This is our first task, caring for our children...as a society we will be judged, and by that measure, can we truly say as a nation that we're meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say we're doing enough to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm?"
The president said he had been reflecting upon that question since the shootings, and that he decided the answer is "No." He noted that this was the fourth time in his presidency he had been called upon to comfort a community after a mass shooting. "We can't tolerate this anymore," the president said. "This must end."
Toward the end of his remarks, the president spoke aloud the first names of the victims in remembrance.
While waiting for the president to arrive, first responders joined the audience. They received a standing ovation and many hugs.
Representatives of various faiths offered words of comfort before the president spoke.
