Walkers in Calhoun County are planning to join others across the globe Friday to take strides in memory of those who lost their lives in the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy last week.
Word of the global event has been spreading on Facebook and several locals have posted plans to take the memory walk from 9:30 to 9:57 a.m. ET (8:30 to 8:57 a.m. local time). It was during these minutes a week prior that the horrible events were occurring at Sandy Hook Elementary leading to the shooting deaths of 20 innocent students, six educators and the mother of the shooter.
Check out The County Record’s Facebook page for more details. Organizers, please post any plans.
