President Bush said Sunday that Americans‘ "hearts are heavy" for tornado victims in devastated Greensburg, Kan., and he expressed confidence the farming town will be rebuilt.

"It‘s going to take a long time for the community to recover, and so we‘ll help in any way we can," Bush said outside St. John‘s Church, across from the White House, where he and first lady Laura Bush attended a worship service.

"Our hearts are heavy for the loss of life in Greensburg, Kansas," Bush said.

"There‘s a certain spirit in the Midwest of our country — a pioneer spirit that still exists," Bush said. "I‘m confident this community will be rebuilt and in the extent that we can help we will."
