Neighbors and strangers show support for grieving community

Kristin Hoyt, 18, of Danbury, Conn., ties a balloon to an overpass up the road from the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, in Newtown, Conn. The massacre of 26 children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary school elicited horror and soul-searching around the world even as it raised more basic questions about why the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, would have been driven to such a crime and how he chose his victims.

As the nation mourns the loss of the 26 children and staff who lost their lives in Friday's school shooting, neighbors and strangers alike are stepping up to help Newtown heal.

A Sanford, N.C. woman was so moved by the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy she has donated 26 Christmas trees - one for each victim- to be put up at the Sandy Hook Fire House.
