WHITE HOUSE (AP) - President Bush and first lady Laura Bush will attend Tuesday's convocation at Virginia Tech to remember the victims of the deadliest school shooting in American history.

After the shooting yesterday, Bush expressed shock and sadness. A student shot dead 32 people before turning the gun on himself.

The White House confirmed this morning that the Bushes would travel to Blacksburg, Virginia, to attend the afternoon convocation.

In his remarks yesterday, the president said schools should be "places of safety, sanctuary and learning."
