Resources to Help Children Cope with Tragedy

Many resources are available to help us as family members, community leaders and social service providers to help cope with violent and traumatic events.

View President Obama's remarks at the Sandy Hook interfaith prayer vigil.

“This job of keeping our children safe, and teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community, and the help of a nation. And in that way, we come to realize that we bear a responsibility for every child because we’re counting on everybody else to help look after ours’; that we’re all parents; that they’re all our children.”

- President Barack Obama
