For those of you unable to make out what’s written on the chalkboard, here’s a transcription.

“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.”

Obama’s response was simple: “”You’re in our thoughts and prayers.”
