President Obama took time out to visit Aurora, CO to visit the victims who were harmed in the Dark Knight Rises mass shooting. He visited the hospitals and met with the families of each of the victims.
The President also gave a speech addressing the unfortunate event…
“I had a chance to visit with each family, and most of the conversation was filled with memory,” Obama said. “It was an opportunity for families to describe how wonderful their brother, or their son, or daughter was, and the lives that they have touched, and the dreams that they held for the future. I confessed to them that words are always inadequate in these kinds of situations, but that my main task was to serve as a representative of the entire country and let them know that we are thinking about them at this moment and will continue to think about them each and every day, and that the awareness that not only all of America but much of the world is thinking about them might serve as some comfort.”
