Dear Mr President, I write on behalf of the people of Wales to express our deepest condolences to you and the American people following the tragic and horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut.

No words can truly express the deep sense of shock and sadness of losing a child. To lose so many children in such horrific circumstances is truly heartbreaking.

We stand with you in your hour of grief.
