Steve George and Bobby Pattison, two Newtown High School teachers, left a whiteboard message for President Obama as he visited the Connecticut town this weekend to speak to the grieving families impacted by the tragedy and address a nation in mourning over the young lives lost.

Good Guy POTUS responded:

Here’s the transcription:

Dear President Obama,

The Newtown community is so thankful that you are coming to help us heal. In times of adversity it is reassuring to know that we have a strong leader to help us recover.

Steve George Teacher/Football Coach
Bobby Pattison Teacher

And his response:

You’re in our thoughts and prayers.

Barack Obama
