The Obamas led the nation in a moment of silence this morning. Though President Obama has spoken to the families of the victims, this morning was a time for a silent memorial to the victims.
The quiet that settled over Washington, D.C., the unity that was shown in that moment, spoke louder than all those trying to figure out why this happened or pointing blame at each other.
Bottom line was that lives were lost and this was a terrible tragedy for our nation. If you missed the moment of silence, keep reading and you can watch it. Our hearts go out to those whose lives were lost.
