President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle lit 26 candles and observed a moment of silence Saturday in honor of the victims of last year's shooting at an elementary school.
Exactly one year ago, on December 14, 2012, a heavily armed man, later identified as 20-year-old Adam Lanza, entered the school in Newtown, Connecticut and opened fire with devastating effect.
In 10 minutes he killed 20 first graders and six teachers and staff before taking his own life. He had also shot his mother dead earlier that morning.
