Local neighborhood holds vigil for Newtown

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The mass murder in Connecticut was felt around the world, and emotions ran deep through our community.

More than 50 people filled Tyler Park tonight, with candles in hand.

The neighborhood association held a vigil to reflect on the 26 victims in Newtown and their families.

They shared poems, thoughts and prayers as they gathered together. This provided an outlet for community members to share their emotions.

Christian Altman attended the vigil. He says, "Most of us have been grieving these losses at home by ourselves but to come together and hear other peoples ideas of how to respond to the tragedy or how to move forward I think is a very nice community."

Governor Steve Beshear asks Kentuckians to observe a moment of silence at 9:30 Friday morning... as others will do across the country.

Church bells will ring for each of the 26 victims, too.
