President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama lit 26 candles at the White House to honor the victims of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy.
After lighting the candles, the president and his wife had a moment of silence, according to pool reports. Obama did not make any remarks, though he devoted his weekly address to calling for action.
