VIDEO: President Obama at Prayer Vigil for Connecticut Shooting Victims: “Newtown, You Are Not Alone”

Posted on 17 December 2012 by Admin Arthia

Newtown High School

Newtown, Connecticut

8:37 P.M. EST

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you, Governor.  To all the families, first responders, to the community of Newtown, clergy, guests — Scripture tells us:  “…do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away…inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

We gather here in memory of twenty beautiful children and six remarkable adults.  They lost their lives in a school that could have been any school; in a quiet town full of good and decent people that could be any town in America. TContinue Reading

After flags were ordered to be flown at half staff to honor the victims of the Stony Hook school shooting in Connecticut, an emotional President Barack Obama briefed the media at 3:16p.m, visibly pausing with a trembling lip, keeping his eyes off the media as he wiped away at least two escaping tears.

He was addressing the morning’s tragic events in Newtown, CT where 24 year-old Ryan Lanza slaughtered the school principal plus 20 children between age 5 and 10, most of them kindergarten students in his mother’s class. His father was found dead in New Jersey and his mother also killed, both in their homes.

“We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years,” said President Obama who stated that when he heard the news, he not only acted as president but also as a parent.

He fought back tears by consistently blinking and took frequent breaths between speaking.

“They had their entire lives ahead of them,” he struggled to say. “Birthdays, graduations, weddings… kids of their own.” TContinue Reading
