President Obama addressed the Nation concerning the mass shooting in Connecticut. Between 27 and 30 people were killed including the gunman’s mother who was teaching a kindergarten class, and many of her students. The principal was killed and allegedly the school guidance counselor. The death toll as of now is 20 children and 7 adults including the gunman. The gunman also killed his brother at the home he shared with his mother in Hoboken, New Jersey before driving to the school. President Obama, who has 2 children of his own, has a heavy heart and expressed great strength and emotion when speaking to the Nation as a father and not just as a President.
