Obama: Teach children to love and cherish differences
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK - President Barack Obama is asking parents to teach their children to love, not hate, and to appreciate differences as something to cherish, not fear.
In his weekly Saturday address, Obama says he's been thinking a lot about parents who've had to explain the Florida nightclub shooting to their kids.
He laments that moments of silence observed after deadly mass shootings often give way to months of "inexcusable" silence and inaction.
In the pre-Father's Day message, Obama says raising children in a safer, more loving world requires parents to speak up for it and to speak out about the dangers guns present.
Obama has called the shooting deaths of 49 people at an Orlando nightclub an "act of terror and an act of hate."
