Nearly ten years have passed since the Sandy Hook school massacre. There have been between 350,000-400,000 firearm-related deaths in the United States since December 14, 2012, when 26 little children and their teachers were murdered at school in Newtown, Connecticut. Many of us and people across the nation have been impacted forever by the loss of friends, classmates, or family members to gun violence.
Come join us in a silent vigil on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, the eve of the Sandy Hook massacre, to remember all the victims of the U.S. gun violence epidemic. The vigil will take place on the Norwich Green in front of the bandstand on Main Street. The bells of the Norwich Congregational Church will ring from 5:00 to 5:30 PM in memory of all those killed or maimed by gun violence. Please bring your own candles or flashlights.
