NEWTOWN, CT (WFSB) -
Kids from across Connecticut gathered around the "peace tree" at Newtown Town Hall on Monday morning after they dropped off 200 cards and snowflakes to the still grieving community.
The memorial outside the Newtown Town Hall continues to grow with cards, candles and stuffed animals being added each hour and everyone with a message for peace and love.
Adam Lanza had two pistols and an AR-15 when he entered Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14 and in just a matter of minutes, he fired multiple rounds killing 20 children and six adults. Before the school shooting, he shot his mother four times.
One man in a group of 20 that stopped by to show their unity and add their condolences said it felt like the right thing to do.
"It feels real good, like I have a part in this," said George Jimenez of Meriden.
For the past three days, a bus, which is being called the Coping and Caring Parent Express, crossed the state and stopped in 10 cities. The bus allowed children the chance to grieve, send their sympathy and show their support.
On Monday morning, the group dropped off more than 200 handmade cards along with 26 "America the Beautiful: Together We Stand" books, each with the name of a victim from Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"We brought snowflakes, cards, wrote meaningful stuff so that they'll feel loved and that someone cares about them," said Trevon Smalls of Middletown. "It makes me feel a part of it as we unite."
One parent and her teenage daughter on board the bus brought something very near and dear to them.
"My daughter gave me this bear," said Lisa Lessard of Waterbury holding the item. "She got it last year for Christmas, and she wanted everyone here to have a bear and a hug, so we're giving the bear as a hug for everyone in Newtown because our hearts and souls go out to the town."
Holding hands around what's being called the "peace tree" in front of town hall, the group took a moment to remember the victims and the loved ones left behind.
"This will be the first holiday for these families without these loved ones and there are no words to describe what they're feeling," said Gwen Samuels of Coping and Caring Parent Express Bus. "We just want them to know they're not alone in the journey."
