President Obama called India's prime minister, Manmohan Singh, the week of the incident to offer his condolences, but has not visited the community.

The first lady told Oak Creek Mayor Stephen Scaffidi and the secretary of the temple where the shooting took place that she hoped to lend the community her support.

"It's my honor to be here with you,” she said. “I'm sorry it's under these circumstances, but I am anxious to meet with the families and lend whatever support I can."
