A Year Since Sandy Hook

Posted on May 5, 2014 by


It is impossible to forget the devastating news at Sandy Hook Elementary school on 14 December 2012. Adam Lanza killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, just moments before going to the school in Newtown, Connecticut, where he shot twenty students, aged six to seven, and six adults.

Lanza was armed with a Bushmaster AR-15, a Glock, and a Sig-Sauer pistol when he decided to shoot the school’s new security system off the door at 9:30 a.m., allowing him to enter.

Police fled to the scene just moments after, and all police noted they did not discharge their weapons at any moment. The gunman took his own life when officers entered a classroom where Lanza was.

Time magazine reported that, just a year after the shooting, Sandy Hook is constructing a plan for a new and improved school. They plan to move the school farther into the woods and away from the roads. There will be rooms at the end of the hallway so that students can go into a tree-house-like room to reflect on the ones that passed away from this horrible tragedy.

Where Adam Lanza killed 26 innocent people will be the old Sandy Hook flag pole. The new building will have curving hallways and a calming design to welcome the children with open arms. The building will have large windows to bring in natural sunlight and a natural feel for the children.
