Weekly Address: Marking the One-Year Anniversary of the Tragic Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut

In his weekly address, President Obama honors the memories of the 26 innocent children and educators who were taken from us a year ago in Newtown, Connecticut.

In today’s weekly address, President Obama said:

“We can’t lose sight of the fact that real change won’t come from Washington.  It will come the way it’s always come – from you.

“From the American people.  As a nation, we can’t stop every act of violence.  We can’t heal every troubled mind.  But if we want to live in a country where we can go to work, send our kids to school, and walk our streets free from fear, we have to keep trying.  We have to keep caring.  We have to treat every child like they’re our child.  Like those in Sandy Hook, we must choose love.  And together, we must make a change.”
