The daughter of Sandy Hook Elementary Principal Dawn Hochsprung tweeted a photo of President Obama holding her child — and said her mother would have been proud.
“My mom would be SO proud to see President Obama holding her granddaughter. But not as proud as I am of her,” Cristina Hassinger tweeted on Sunday. The photo had been shared over 2,700 times by late Monday morning.
Hochsprung died on Friday morning when authorities said heavily armed Adam Lanza forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 children and six adults in a shooting rampage before killing himself as police closed in.
Upon hearing gunfire at the school during Friday morning’s shooting, Hochsprung, 47, along with the school’s psychologist, Mary Sherlach, reportedly ran toward the barrage of bullets to protect students.
