North Shore to observe National Day of Mourning

Church bells across the North Shore will toll 26 times tomorrow morning in memory of the children and staff killed in last Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Local communities are taking part in the National Day of Mourning by observing a moment of silence at 9:30 a.m. and by ringing church bells.

“The tragedy at Sandy Hook has struck at the hearts and minds of all of us in Salem and across the country,” said Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll.

"As a parent of young children, this awful tragedy has especially hit home. It’s important that our community joins the nation in standing with Newtown in remembrance of the many — far too many — loved ones lost at Sandy Hook.”
