Bushes in Southington to honor Newtown victims

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (AP) -- Twenty-six butterfly bushes are being planted along the Southington Rail Trail to honor the 20 first graders and six educators killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Planting the bushes was spearheaded by two Southington mothers who vowed to have their daughters grow up in a community inspired by beautiful acts of kindness in response to the Dec. 14 massacre in Newtown.

Friday marked the six-month anniversary of the shooting. In Newtown, there was a moment of silence and a reading of the victims' names.
