OSO — Standing beneath a banner proclaiming “Oso Proud” one month after the deadly landslide, President Barack Obama told the residents of the hard-hit Stillaguamish Valley that the nation is grieving with them as they struggle to rebuild homes, businesses and families.

“There are still families who are searching for loved ones,” Obama said after an aerial tour of the devastation aboard the presidential helicopter Marine One and a visit with survivors and first responders. “There are families who have lost everything, and it’s going to be a difficult road ahead for them. That’s why I wanted to come here. To let you know that the country is thinking about all of you.”
