Addressing a stunned nation, President Barack Obama on Saturday grieved for the children and teachers massacred in Newtown, Conn., declaring that “every parent in America has a heart heavy with hurt.”

Obama, addressing the tragedy for the second time since the violence erupted Friday, sympathized with the families of the dead and said he and his wife, Michelle, “are doing what I know every parent is doing – holding our children as close as we can and reminding them how much we love them.”

“Our hearts are broken today,” the president said. “We grieve for the families of those we lost. And we keep in our prayers the parents of those who survived, because, as blessed as they are to have their children home, they know that their child’s innocence has been torn away far too early.”

Obama’s remarks were similar to ones he delivered emotionally from the White House briefing room Friday afternoon. Obama paused and wiped his eyes as he spoke Friday, just hours after the shootings. He reiterated his appeal that, “regardless of the politics,” it was time for the country to join together and “take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this.” [News Source AP]
