A photo of President Obama learning about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14 has been released by the White House, Daily Mail reports Jan. 3.
In the picture, Obama is resting against a sofa in the Oval Office, looking down in grief as Deputy National Security Adviser, John Brennan, gives him the horrible message. The photo reveals the first moment the nation's leader experienced the "worst day of my presidency."
The nation learned all too quickly that a mentally disturbed 20-year-old went on a violent rampage by first killing his mother before heading to Sandy Hook and fatally shooting 20 first-grade students and six educators at the school facility on Friday, Dec. 14. It was news that shook not only America, but the entire world. There's been no motive to this day on what caused the shooter to target innocent young children and brave school staff. Authorities are aggressively seeking answers, but there will never be anything valid enough to support such an atrocity.
President Obama met with Sandy Hook victims' families and vowed to change current laws regarding assault weapons.
