Video: Watch President Obama Address the Conn. School Shooting

White House

President Barack Obama just spoke to the nation regarding the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut today. The latest reports from Connecticut list dozens dead, including 20 children. 

A live blog from NPR covering today's tragedy writes: 

A visibly upset President Obama, pausing at times to wipe his eyes, just told the nation that "our hearts are broken today." 'The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,' he said. 'They had their entire lives ahead of them ... birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.'"
