(Editor's note - the following essay was written by Gary Briane Tuttle, of Waterbury, in the aftermath of the Newtown massacre)
As each passing day brings news of funerals for victims of the Sandy Hook shootings, many of us see our own loved ones in the faces of the victims, and we are all in search of ways to answer the obvious question, “What now?”
Hundreds of grieving citizens of Greater Waterbury attended a prayer service for the victims of the Newtown shooting this afternoon inside the Immaculate Conception Church in downtown Waterbury. Tomorrow night at 6 pm another service is scheduled inside the same church as the community comes together to honor its teachers. The public is invited to attend. Photograph by John Murray

Governor Dan Malloy is asking the State of Connecticut to participate in a moment of silence on Friday, December 21, at 9:30 a.m. and ring bells 26 times in memory of the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The Rev Al Sharpton, nationally known civil rights activist and the host of PoliticsNation on MSNBC will be the guest speaker at The Connecticut State Missionary Baptist Convention Tuesday night, December 18th, at Zion Baptist Church, 147 Pearl Street in Waterbury. The prayer vigil and service is for the victims and survivors of the Newton tragedy. From the pulpit, Rev. Sharpton will call on officials and members of the community to get serious about gun control. Rev. Sharpton will speak at 8:00 p.m. Rev. Sharpton will also be joined by NAN board member Rev. Dr. Boise Kimber, President of the Connecticut State Missionary Baptist Convention, and other clergy, activists and community members.
