[PHOTOS & VIDEO] Sandy Hook Memorials

Ten days after the shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown memorials in the village have grown as people come to town to pay their respects for the 20 children and six adults who were killed on Dec. 14.

Texas. Rhode Island. Ohio. New York. South Carolina. People from nearly every state in the U.S., and from countries across the globe, have come to Newtown in the past 10 days.

They cry. They pray. They walk slowly through thousands of memorials left in the village of Sandy Hook as if they were on sacred ground. They are here to mourn and to celebrate the lives of the 20 children and six adults who were killed at Sandy Hook School on Dec. 14. They are here for Newtown.

There's been no official word on when the memorials will be removed, but some residents have said they believe it will be tomorrow, Dec. 26.

Continuing to pray for everyone in Newtown and beyond, for the unspeakable loss and heartache. God has all of the victims and their families in His hand, though it may not seem like it today. Prayers won't stop for you. Be strong.

How about a memorial snowglobe in the center of town filled with the snowflakes from the world? The children would love it!
