Our hearts and prayers go to Connecticut

President Obama gave a statement today that I think expresses the way the entire country feels.

There is a horrible human compulsion, in the wake of a tragedy, to seek easy answers, to apply political understandings, thinking that we’ll easily prevent this from happening the next time. Instead, maybe it’s better to just turn off the television and hold tight to the things that really matter in this life – family, friends, neighbors – because you never know when you might never see them again.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families in Connecticut, and all the families who have found themselves victims of violence.
