|Bringing Back Holleywood||
.A luminous gathering last night on the White Hart Green in memory of the 26 lives lost on December 14, 2012 in the Sandy Hook School shooting. Each name was read aloud between tolls of a bell. The gathering was organized by Sophia deBoer, co-founder of the Northwest Corner Committee for Gun Violence Protection. She and her husband Lee deBoer were parents of a student at Wesleyan in 2009 when a classmate was shot to death by a mentally unstable stalker with easy access to to guns. The grandmother of that victim, Johanna Justin-Jinich, had been a Holocaust survivor.
