Newtown asks for privacy, kindness on 1-year mark
NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Families of those killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre are asking people to consider marking the anniversary with "acts of kindness."
The families of the 20 children and six educators killed at the school also announced a new website- http://mysandyhookfamily.org_ with information on how the individual families are honoring the victims.
Saturday is the anniversary of the Dec. 14 massacre. Town officials are not hosting formal events that day. Officials including First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra asked at a news conference Monday for the media to give the town space as it urges people to mark the date in ways that are quiet and personal.
Local officials and members of Connecticut's congressional delegation are also appealing for acts of service and kindness to mark the anniversary.
