The White House has announced that President Barack Obama will attend a memorial service honoring the 14 killed in last Wednesday’s explosion at the West Fertilizer Company. Mr. and Mrs. Obama will fly to Waco after attending the ribbon cutting ceremony at the George W. Bush presidential museum and library at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

The memorial service is scheduled for Thursday the 25th at Baylor University. BU recently celebrated its annual Diadeloso festival, which students respectfully turned into a benefit for aiding in relief efforts for West.
