December in Sandy Hook - Four Years After

12/14/14 Update - I  have received more photos. They are shared below.

On this fourth year since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school, I'm very proud to present a few photos sent to me by a prominent Sandy Hook resident.  These photos were taken December 13, 2016 especially for the Sandy Hook Facts 12-14-16 blog post.

I am personally honored and grateful to receive these photos.

I am told the weather is much like it was four years ago and that is perhaps adding to the grief.

Note the "Ben's Bell" hanging from the tree behind the new Sandy Hook sign.

These Belgium stones have been laid out in a yard on Philo Curtis Road since shortly after the shootings. I left part of the outbuilding in the background to give you a sense of scale.

The house is across the road from Treadwell Park, where the press conferences were held, and it's just around the corner from the firehouse.

Sandy Hook fire department and their annual Christmas tree sale.

You'll note the same exact Christmas Tree sale signage in use today as on 12-14-12.

Sandy Hook Center:

Sandy Hook Center, Take Two
The tree on the right has been the Christmas tree in Sandy Hook Center for years. That's the tree that all of the donations started being left under, and then around, in the days following 12/14.

The one on the left is the one that was planted in 2013.

These photos were taken today.
