Newtown Celebrates Christmas and Remembers Victims
Well-wishers from around the country are still coming to pay their respects in the Connecticut town where a gunman killed 20 school children and six adults.
Volunteers have been keeping watch over a Christmas candlelight vigil since midnight.
Twenty-six candles, one for each victim, were lit at midnight Monday near a huge sidewalk memorial filled with teddy bears, flowers, candles, posters and other tributes to the dead.
And police officers from other communities have been filling in for Newtown police so they can spend time with their families.
At Christmas morning services, congregants were told that good always overcomes evil.
