Newtown marks 8th anniversary of shootings at Sandy Hook School

The Town of Newtown has traditionally marked the anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook School with a moment of silence.  First Selectmen over the years have said that there's different grief for different groups in the community for a town-wide observance wouldn't be fitting. This year's traditional interfaith service will be live streamed at 7pm on the Newtown Congregational Church Facebook page.

St. Rose Lima Church pastor Monsignor Robert Weiss, who had the challenge of presiding over many of the funerals 8 years ago, has suggested to again remember those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook School in ways that are quiet, personal and respectful.  Over the years the themes have centered on kindness, love and service to others.

Newtown state Senator Tony Hwang has called on area residents to pause for a few moments today to remember those students and staff who were killed at Sandy Hook School 8 years ago.  He says the community continues to heal from the emotionally traumatic impact of that unspeakable event and notes that much good is being done in honor of those killed that day.
