HARTFORD – Senator Tony Hwang (R-Newtown) issued the following statement on Friday on the sixth anniversary of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Today we mourn and memorialize the 26 lives we lost six years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary and we reflect on how our world has changed.

On December 14th, 2012 an unthinkable tragedy happened to our town and our nation.  Our community was rocked by an evil we still do not fully understand, but out of that darkness has come light. We have drawn strength from the families who lost loved ones, and we have lifted our community up to better channel the sense of loss and grief that we all still feel toward creating a better environment for all.

Today, as encouraged by Newtown leaders, we show our remembrance by committing to personal acts of service and kindness rather than at a formal ceremony. I will donate toys and games to the “Toys for Tots” program that will be delivered to children during the holiday season. The goal is to bring a joyous spirit of caring and sharing to children and families.

I am humbled to represent the resilient and proud communities of Newtown, Sandy Hook and all the towns in the 28th District. I am grateful to our community for showing our country, state and neighbors that we must continue to find the strength and resolve to make a conscious effort to Be Kind.
