    Newtown, Conn., is still reeling from the senseless tragedy that took place Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    On Sunday, President Barack Obama attended a vigil in the heartbroken town to remember the 26 victims. The devastated POTUS told Newtown they "are not alone" and that the town has "inspired us with stories of strength and resolve and sacrifice."

    Sandy Hook principal Dawn Hochsprung's daughter, Cristina Hassinger, tweeted a picture of her daughter and Obama, writing, "My mom would be SO proud to see President Obama holding her granddaughter. But not as proud as I am of her."

    Of course, Sandy Hook's fallen angels were honored outside of Newtown as well.

    On Saturday, Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen joined the Rolling Stones in concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Early on during the show, Mick Jagger said the band "just wanted to send our love and condolences to all the people who lost loved ones in the tragedy in Connecticut."

    Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the Newtown tragedy.
