    "Holding You in Our Hearts.” That’s the title of an open letter Michelle Obama wrote to Newtown and the victims of the horrific Sandy Hook shooting, sharing her grief over the loss of the 20 children and seven adults killed in the Newtown shooting. “As a mother of two young daughters, my heart aches for you and your families,” she writes. She praises the heroism of Newtown’s first responders, as well as its children, parents, educators and “the outpouring of love and support that has come from every corner of America,” adding that the president “will use all the powers of his office” to “prevent tragedies like this one.”
