The first funerals from Friday's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School are set for Today. This, as the president, offers the "love and prayers of a nation" to the grieving community of Newtown, Connecticut.

"These tragedies must end. To end them we must change, and in the coming weeks, I will use the powers of this office to prevent more shootings," said the President.

The president spoke at a vigil, following his private meetings with the families and first responders. Twenty children and six adults were killed in the shooting.

Services for 6-year-olds Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto are being planned for Today. Noah's twin sister, Arielle, was in a different classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary. She survived the shooting. More services are planned throughout the rest of the week.
