First lady Michelle Obama is applauded Tuesday before President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address during a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington. On the front row, to the left of the first lady are Nathaniel and Cleopatra Pendleton, parents of slain teen Hadiya Pendleton. Saturday the first lady was in Chicago to attend the 15-year-old’s funeral. Chicago police announced charges in Hadiya’s murder and in bond court the man charged as the gunman said the girl was not the target, “she was just there.” Also pictured, Menchu Sanchez and Jill Biden.
