Residents of Newtown, Connecticut still trying to cope with last month’s massacre at a local elementary school must now decide what to do with the school itself.
FOX News Radio’s Paul Stevens reports:
The first of two meetings taking place in Newtown Sunday night. Residents talking about what to do with the Sandy Hook Elementary School building where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six staff members last month.
Some – saying the school should never re-open:
(Opposed to Standing School) “Knock that school down and make is sacred ground, a memorial to all the people that were destroyed that day.”
Others – insisting the school should stand:
(For Standing School)”Knocking down the school would be knocking down the memories of all the children that went there.”
Sandy hook students and staff already relocating to another school in a neighboring town.
Another town meeting coming up Friday.
