For the people most directly touched by the Newtown shootings, the very fact of this day may have been hard to imagine. That six months would pass. That there would be a day when, somehow, they would have survived for half a year with their grief and their memories. But Newtown isn't a tiny place. More than 27,000 people live here. The shootings mean different things to all of them, but they also travel the same road, at least in certain ways. One of the questions facing Newtown right now is: to what degree should this be a place of memorial?.And at what pace should the town move forward? How do you move on without moving past those lost lives? We're in the offices of the Newtown Bee today, the six-month anniversary of the killings. We're asking how a town heals collectively and individually. You can join the conversation. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet us @wnprcolin.
