Obama Highlights Hadiya Pendleton In SOTU

Lisa Balde and BJ Lutz (NBCLA) | February 12, 2013

President Barack Obama on Tuesday highlighted the recent shooting death of Chicago teen Hadiya Pendleton in his call for “commonsense reform” to the nation’s gun laws.

“In the two months since Newtown, more than a thousand birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun,” Obama said during his fifth State of the Union address.

“One of those we lost was a young girl named Hadiya Pendleton. She was 15 years old. She loved Fig Newtons and lip gloss. She was a majorette. She was so good to her friends, they all thought they were her best friend. Just three weeks ago, she was here, in Washington, with her classmates, performing for her country at my inauguration. And a week later, she was shot and killed in a Chicago park after school, just a mile away from my house,” he said.

Pendleton’s parents, Nate and Cleo, were seated next to First Lady Michelle Obama to witness the address.
