FLOTUS on Aurora

In a Monday conference call previewing her London Olympic trip, the First Lady took a moment for some lovely words about the victims of the Colorado shooting:

“I just wanted to take a moment before we got started because I just want to say how heartbroken that Barack and I are about the tragic shooting that took place in Aurora, Colorado on Friday and I would be remiss to mention that the incident. Barack and I, we have seen people, and so have people around this country, we’ve seen people across this country come together as one American family to mourn victims of this devastating event and to support their friends and families and loved ones and I know that we’ll continue that support in the difficult time ahead. So, I know that we are all, even as we enter the Olympics, this wonderful occasion, I know that we are all holding the people of Aurora in our hearts and our prayers.”

Listen to that sound from the call above.
