    President Obama's Whiteboard Message At Newtown High School

    Before addressing the nation from the Newtown High School auditorium on Sunday night, President Obama took a moment to respond to a whiteboard message written by two NHS teachers.

    The note reads:

    "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."

    - Steve George, Teacher/Football Coach

    - Bobby Pattison, Teacher

    The President's response:

    "You're in our thoughts and prayers."

    -Barack Obama
