Obama lights national tree, remembers California victims

WASHINGTON (TIP): US President Barack Obama and his family led the lighting of the National Christmas Tree on Thursday, December 3, with charity, thanks, and a moment of reflection for the victims of Wednesday’s shooting.

“Now, this is, of course, the most wonderful time of the year. But we would be remiss not to take a moment to remember our fellow Americans whose hearts are heavy tonight – who grieve for loved ones, especially in San Bernardino, California,” Obama said in reference to the rampage that left 14 dead and 21 wounded.

“Their loss is our loss, too, for we’re all one American family. We look out for each other in good times, and in bad. And they should know that all of us care about them this holiday season,” he said.
