National Cathedral vigil for Newtown, gun violence victims

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Two days before the one-year anniversary of the deadly shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, the National Cathedral in Washington hosted a vigil service of mourning and remembrance. Hundreds gathered at the nation's cathedral on Thursday for a multi-faith service to remember the 20 first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary, and the six adults, who were shot dead on December 14, 2012 by a mentally unstable gunman, Adam Lanza. The program was co-organized by The Newtown Foundation as a vigil to all victims of gun violence, according the cathedral's website. Special guests and dignitaries as well as community leaders from across the country, were scheduled to attend in honor of the more than 30,000 Americans who have died from a gunshot since the Newtown shooting, the cathedral's website said.
