First permanent memorial to Sandy Hook victims complete

Saturday, January 26, 2013

The first permanent memorial to the school shooting victims in Newtown, Connecticut is now complete.

There are 26 stars on the roof of the Sandy Hook firehouse - one for each of the people killed in the attack.

There are small stars for the 20 first graders, and larger stars for the teachers and principal who lost their lives.

The first responders at the station say they hope the memorial stands as a beacon of hope and a symbol of unity after the tragedy.
