One week since tragedy in Newtown

People push for change

NEWTOWN, Conn. - One week ago today, a gunman opened fire at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, killing six adults and 20 children.

Churches around the country will help remember the victims this morning.


Bells across Connecticut will toll 26 times at 9:30 Friday morning...marking the exact moment when terror invaded Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Governor Dan Malloy called for a moment of silence at that hour and asked places of worship and buildings with bells to ring them once for every victim shot to death inside the school.
Clergy in other states say they'll do the same to honor the victims....and many governors asked residents to observe a moment of silence.
