I was down in Texas, letting the people of West, Texas know that we all love them and care about them in their time of grieving
President Obama was speaking at a memorial service in Waco, Texas (nearby West, Texas) in honor and remembrance of the 15 lives lost in a fertilizer plant explosion that occurred on April 17, 2013.
Officials still (as of 04.26.13) have not determined the exact cause of the fire and subsequent explosion, though they have ruled out natural causes.
As well as those that lost their lives, at least 200 more were injured. The President has deemed the site a federal disaster area.
