America Mourns Elementary School Massacre

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown Conn. Twenty children and 6 adults were killed.

Paul Hagan of Minneapolis lost his niece and told WCCO’s Dave Lee today the family is still recovering.

“It’s going to be a difficult day for our family tomorrow,” he said. “It’s been a slow process, kind of day-to-day. You have boundaries you set for yourself to get past, and a big one for us is going to be tomorrow.”

Hagan said all of the victims’ families are asking mourners to perform an act of kindness tomorrow in honor of those lost.  To find out how you can help out Charlotte’s family, click here.

Members of the Newtown, Conn., community, including the parent of a teacher killed in a school massacre a year ago, gathered at the National Cathedral Thursday for a vigil to remember those who lost their lives because of gun violence.
