They say a picture tells 1000 words and this is total reinforcement of that fact. Pres. Obama pictured the very moment he learned about all those kids being taken from us at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school.

I don’t know about you but I can almost feel the president’s grief in this picture as he hears the horrible news the massacre occurred, and then to learn it was all those children, unthinkable.


“The President reacts as John Brennan briefs him on the details of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.,” according to the caption provided by White House photographer Pete Souza. “The President later said during a TV interview that this was the worst day of his Presidency.”

Later that day Obama made televised remarks from the briefing room at the White House.

“The majority of those who died today were children, beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” the president said of the 26 victims, pausing to collect himself. “They had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”
