Remembering the Victims of Sandy Hook


It's been one year since 26 lives were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and over these past 12 months, in the wake of the tragedy, there's been a huge outpouring of support for and within the Newtown community. People from near and far have come together to mourn, honor, pray and also make a difference.

From the Sandy Ground Project which strives to build 26 playgrounds, one to honor each victim, to the 26 people who biked from Newtown to Washington, D.C. for a rally in support of gun control legislation, we look at some spectacular stories of how those lost are being remembered.

Today, the president takes time to remember Newtown as well. He released this message to commemorate the anniversary:
