NEWTOWN, Conn. —This Christmas was unlikeany other in Newtown.When a gunman wipedout nearly an entire first-grade class and killed stu-dents and adults in two otherfirst-grade classrooms just11 days before Christmas,it made it impossible for theholiday to be the same thisyear.Some residents, likeJoanne Brunetti, have foundways to console and helptheir grieving neighbors.Well-wishers from aroundthe country are stopping byto do the same.Brunetti watched over26 candles that had beenlit at midnight, just beforeChristmas Day, in honor of those slain at Sandy HookElementary School. She andher husband, Bill, signed upfor a three-hour shift anderected a tent to ensure thatthe candle flames never wentout throughout the day.“You have to do some-thing and you don’t knowwhat to do, you know? Youreally feel very helplessin this situation,” she saidTuesday. “People have beenwonderful to everybody inNewtown whether you werepart of what happened or not.My thought is if we were allthis nice to each other all thetime maybe things like thiswouldn’t happen.”At a town hall memorial,Faith Leonard waved to peo-ple driving by and handedout Christmas cookies, chil-dren’s gifts and hugs to any-one who needed it.“I guess my thought wasif I could be here helpingout maybe one person wouldbe able to spend more timewith their family or grievein the way they needed to,”said Leonard, who drove toNewtown from Gilbert, Ariz.,to volunteer on Christmasmorning. “I know they’vebeen inundated with sup-port and that’s great, but it’salways nice to have a presentto open on Christmas Day.”Julian Revie played“Silent Night” on a pianoon the sidewalk at the down-town memorial. Revie, fromOttawa, Canada, was in thearea visiting at the time of the shootings. He canceledhis plans to go to Australia,found a piano online andchose to spend Christmas Eveand Christmas Day playingfor the people of Newtown.“It was such a mood of respectful silence,” saidRevie, who planned to leavethe piano behind. “But yes-terday being Christmas Eveand today being ChristmasDay, I thought now it’s timefor some Christmas carolsfor the children.”Many town residentsattended Christmas Eve ser-vices Monday evening andspent the morning at homewith their families. Othersattended church services insearch of a new beginning.At St. Rose of LimaRoman Catholic Church,attended by eight of the childvictims of the massacre, thepastor told parishioners that“today is the day we begineverything all over again.”Recalling the shootingsat Sandy Hook ElementarySchool on Dec. 14, the Rev.Robert Weiss said: “Themoment the first responderbroke through the doors weknew good always over-comes evil.”“We know Christmas in away we never ever thoughtwe would know it,” he said.“We need a little Christmasand we’ve been given it.”Volunteers hung orna-ments on a series of memo-rial Christmas trees Tuesdaymorning while police offi-cers from around the statetook extra shifts to directtraffic, patrol the town andgive police here a break.“It’s a nice thing that theycan use us this way,” TedLatiak, a police detectivefrom Greenwich, Conn., saidChristmas morning, as heand a fellow detective, eachworking a half-day shift,came out of a store withbagels and coffee for otherofficers.The expansive memori-als throughout town havebecome gathering points forresidents and visitors alike.A steady stream of residents,some in pajamas, relit candlesthat had been extinguished inan overnight snowstorm.Others took pictures,dropped off toys and foughtback tears at a huge sidewalkmemorial in the center of Newtown’s Sandy Hook sec-tion that is filled with stuffedanimals, poems, flowers,posters and cards. Snow cov-ered a pile of teddy bearsdisplayed in town.Newtown officials plan toconvert the countless memen-tos paying tribute to the 20children and six adults intoa memorial. Thousands of flowers, letters, signs, pho-tos, candles, teddy bears andother items at sites aroundtown will be turned into soiland blocks to be used in amemorial, The News Timesin Danbury reports.The mementos will stayup until after the New Yearas residents and visitors paytheir respects.Police have yet to offer apossible motive for gunmanAdam Lanza’s rampage. The20-year-old Newtown man,who lived at home, killedhis mother in her bed beforeheading to the school andkilling 20 children — alleither 6 or 7 years— andsix adults. He then killedhimself.
