Obama to Attend Newtown Memorial

As the father of two children, President Obama has been visibly distraught over the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. On Sunday, he plans to visit Newtown, Conn., to meet with victims’ families and first responders. At 7 p.m., he will speak publicly at an interfaith vigil for the school’s families. On Friday, the president held a press conference where, wiping tears from his eyes, he spoke of “the beautiful little kids” and said “I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.”
