AP PHOTOS: In Newtown, reminders of grief, hope

Balloons fly outside a doctor’s office on the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre, in Newtown, Conn., Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013. Bells tolled 26 times to honor the children and educators killed one year ago in a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School as local churches held memorial services. With snow falling and homes decorated with Christmas lights, Newtown looked every bit the classic New England town. But reminders of the private grief were everywhere. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty)
