President Barack Obama visited Newtown on Sunday night and a simple message left on a whiteboard at Newtown High School is sweeping across social media.
Obama attended a multi-faith vigil at the school on Sunday night and Steve George, a teacher and football coach; and Robert Pattison, a teacher, had left him a message.
“Dear President Obama, The Newtown community is so thankful that you are coming to help us heal. In times of adversity it is reassuring to know that we have a strong leader to help us recover.”
And the president responded.
“You’re in our thoughts and prayers,” the president wrote in response.
George Tweeted out the photo and it’s been retweeted 623 times.
