Obama Statement on the Tragedy at Virginia Tech
U.S. Senator Barack Obama released the following statement on the shootings at Virginia Tech:
"Today, we are a grieving and shocked nation. Violence has once again taken too many young people from this world. In Blacksburg, they were daughters. They were sons. They were our nation's new leaders. We mourn them. We will miss them, and we pray for their families and the injured fighting for their lives."
