The Nation Remembers Sandy Hook 5 Years Later

Posted: Updated:

Today marks five years since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  The lives of 26 children and staff were lost, and today the nation remembers. 

Six-year-old Daniel Barden was among the 20 children and 6 staff killed during the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Five years later, his sister is singing by his dad’s side during a vigil in Connecticut.

It's one of hundreds across the country in December, honoring lives lost to gun violence.

Former Sandy Hook teacher Abbey Clements and her second-grade students all survived. Now, like many here, she's fighting for stricter gun laws.  

A quarter mile from the new Sandy Hook Elementary School, this five-acre plot of land will become a permanent memorial.
