Francine Wheeler, the mother of slain Sandy Hook Student, Ben Wheeler became the first civilian to ever deliver President Obama’s weekly address. Her emotional testimony was delivered with her husband, David, at her side.
Mrs. Wheeler shares her remarks painfully, but with a grace and eloquence that is beyond measure.
“Sometimes, I close my eyes and all I can remember is that awful day waiting at the Sandy Hook Volunteer Firehouse for the boy who would never come home — the same firehouse that was home to Ben’s Tiger Scout Den 6, But other times, I feel Ben’s presence filling me with courage for what I have to do, for him and all the others taken from us so violently and too soon.”
