In Rehoboth Beach, Memorial Honors Shooting Victims
REHOBOTH BEACH — People everywhere are looking for a way to deal with the pain and grief they feel for families who lost their children in the senseless shootings in Newtown, Conn.
Two Rehoboth Beach brothers expressed their feelings by creating a memorial of Christmas greens that stands along the Boardwalk. As if by magic, 20 memorial wreaths and six evergreen crosses appeared late Dec. 18 near the Bandstand.
The memorial is a tribute to the 20 children and six adults murdered Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Below each wreath is the name of a child who died, and tied to each wreath is a Christmas stocking containing their name. Six crosses - three on each side - bear the names of the slain adults to complete the memorial.
