Newton's children celebreate Christmas Eve

A still-grieving community in Newton, Connecticut celebrates Christmas with the memory of a mass school shooting still fresh in their minds. Twenty children and six adults were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the Sandy Hook elementary school earlier this month. During a Christmas Eve service at the Trinity Episcopal Church, reverend Kathleen Adams-Shepherd barely mentioned the shooting, focusing instead on the children who attended the service. In funeral after funeral, church leaders in Newton have been remembering the victims in somber memorial ceremonies But today's service celebrated life and attempted to bring a little cheer to children during a holiday season marred by tragedy.
