VIDEO: Peabody Remembers the Victims of Sandy Hook

A large crowd gathered in front of City Hall Thursday evening for a candlelight vigil to reflect and remember the victims killed in the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. on Dec. 14.

A large somber crowd spent about 30 minutes in silence Thursday evening in front of City Hall, listening to Mayor Ted Bettencourt and four local religious leaders reflect on the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School one week ago.

Several among the crowd, both adults and children, held signs along with their candles of the victims' names.

Fr. John MacInnis, Rev. Joel Anderle, Rabbi Nechemia Schusterman and Rabbi Deborah Zuker all shared thoughts or prayers for the evening.

I'm so glad that we are gathering in their memory. There can't be enough prayers for these children, teachers, and most of all, those left behind. If there can be any peace for these families, let it be.

It's such a horrible tragedy and I'm so glad we could all come together as a community and pray for those famines and children
