One year anniversary of the massacre coming up


WASHINGTON — Families and friends of the 26 people killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School have gathered in the nation's capital to honor their loved ones through prayer and volunteer work nearly one year after the Newtown massacre.

Relatives of other gun violence victims from cities across the country joined the Connecticut group on a two-day trip to Washington, D.C., to highlight the deaths of more than 30,000 people killed nationwide by firearms since the Dec. 14 school shooting.
