Obama family attends Easter service at DC church

Obama family attends Easter service at DC church

President Barack Obama and his family have attended Easter service at a historically black Methodist church in southeast Washington.
Joining Obama at the service Sunday at the Allen Chapel AME Church were his wife, Michelle, daughters Sasha and Malia, and his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson. Also attending were the mayor of Washington, Adrian Fenty, and his wife.
Southeast Washington was rocked last week by a drive-by shooting that left four dead and five others wounded.
Pastor Michael Bell says it is providence that the president would attend service at Allen Chapel AME Church so shortly after the shootings. Bell says it is heartening to know than southeast Washington has not been forgotten.
