In a speech tonight addressing last week's mass shooting in Newtown, CT, Pres. Obama declared, "We're not doing enough" to stop such violence and "[W]e'll have to change."

Obama said, "In the coming weeks, I'll use whatever power I have as president to engage" Americans to promote the needed change.

"We're not doing enough, and we'll have to change," Obama declared.

"We can't tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And, to end them, we must change," Obama said.

Obama repeatedly stressed the primacy of the value of the lives of children.

Obama recited the first names of those killed in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. and closed by quoting Jesus and the New Testament saying, "Let the little children come to me."
