Bells Ring in Newtown to Mark 1 Week Since Deadly Shooting
In Newton, Conn., and in New York, Boston, Denver and elsewhere, bells have chimed today to mark one week since the shootings that left 20 schoolchildren dead.
Among those who gathered in Newtown were 13 survivors of a 2005 school shooting on an Indian reservation in Minnesota. They drove nearly 1,500 miles to support and comfort the families and survivors.
Church bells were rung 26 times -- once for each of the teachers and children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday.
Outside the town hall in Newtown, traffic stopped as bells rang out to honor the dead. Firefighters bowed their heads around a memorial filled with teddy bears, other stuffed animals and a New York Giants pillow. (AP)
