Watching Barack Obama hug her young daughter, Cristina Hassinger should have felt elated.
But the moment was tinged with sadness as the only reason the youngster was in the arms of the president of the U.S. was because her heroic grandmother had been shot dead two days early. Dawn Hochsprung was the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and was gunned down trying to stop Adam Lanzer from entering the building.
The 47-year-old ran out of a meeting to confront the armed attacker, but she was killed trying to save her pupils.
In the hours leading up to an interfaith memorial ceremony in Newtown on Sunday night, Mr Obama met the families of victims and Mrs Hochsprung's daughter Cristina Hassinger posted a photo of the moment to Twitter.
Ms Hassinger used the poignant caption: 'My mom would be SO proud to see President Obama holding her granddaughter. But not as proud as I am of her.' Her grief at losing her mother who was pursuing her Ph.D., is clear on her Twitter page.

It didn't take much to fix it.
What is really sad is that this very brave and committed lady was gunned down while she was unarmed.

I hope somebody disinfected the child afterwards.
Your laws ignore our deepest needs
Your words are empty air
You’ve stripped away our heritage
You’ve outlawed simple prayer
Now gunshots fill our classrooms
And precious children die
You seek for answers everywhere
And ask the question ‘Why’?
You regulate restrictive laws
Through legislative creed
And yet you fail to understand
That God is what we need

She wasn't supposed to be shot till Sunday? Hm.
Well, seems she died for a good cause. Her daughter and granddaughter got to meet Obama. So everything turned out okay.
When I die, please keep zero from coming anywhere NEAR my family.
Definitely. Cooties... eewww.
Except he is not the President.
For my children it was “Nay Nay From strangers stay away”
For my grandchildren its “Stranger Danger”
that grinning jug-eared poser just looks absolutely grief stricken, doesn’t he?
