‘My mom would be so proud’

Christina Hassinger the daughter of Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung, who died during Friday’s shooting, posted a photo on Twitter of President Barack Obama holding Dawn’s granddaughter.

Hassinger said “My mom would be SO proud to see President Obama holding her granddaughter. But not as proud as I am of her.”

Obama met with the families’ of victims before an interfaith prayer service at Newtown High School Sunday night. The meetings were private and closed to the media. The White House didn’t release any statements on what was said, per custom, and also didn’t distribute photos.

Hassinger and the family of Emilie Parker shared photos.
