Communities Remember CT Shooting Victims

Quincy, FL-December 16, 2012

Dozen of vigils were held across the country Sunday to honor and remember the victims in the tragic elementary school shooting in Connecticut.

Members of the First Presbyterian Church in Quincy, Florida gathered to grieve over the tragic elementary school shooting more than 800 miles away.

"We suffer with them. We are heartbroken with them," says Pastor Chris Erde.

It is one of just countless vigils held across the country to honor and remember the victims as many struggled to make sense of the shooting.

"Words will come when words will come. But now, our speaking should just be perhaps between us and our Lord," says Erde.

Connecticut State Police say the alleged shooter, Adam Lanza, went into Sandy Hook Elementary School and slaughtered 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself.

In Connecticut, President Barack Obama offered the condolences of a nation.

" I am very mindful that mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow nor can they heal your wounded hearts," says Obama.
