We Remember: 5 Sandy Hook Musical Tributes

I am a writer. Words are my life, but when 28 people die in a school shooting, most of who were under 10-years-old, there are no words.

Luckily there is music, a universal language, to lift us up and help us mourn, remember and heal.

Take a look at five beautiful Sandy Hook musical tributes and please share any others you have comes across in the comments.
