Biden declared December 14 as Day of Remembrance for the victims of Sandy Hook
US President Joe Biden declared December 14 as the Day of Remembrance for the victims of the murder of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which happened exactly ten years ago. They were killed by Adam Lanza, who burst into the school with a semi-automatic rifle.
This date is also a symbolic memorial for all victims of gun violence in the United States, which has reached critical proportions in the past decade and a half.
“Those first graders were supposed to be eleventh graders today and planning their school prom and their futures,” the White House statement, signed by Biden, said.
– The dead teachers should have prepared a program for the new students and fully enjoy life with their loved ones. Instead, their pews remained empty forever, their families were left with a void in their hearts, and our country was deprived of a piece of its soul.
This year, for the first time in 30 years, the president signed bipartisan gun control legislation and took a series of executive actions to reduce gun violence. Biden advocates banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition.
“Let’s recognize the bravery of the survivors and the families of the victims, take responsibility for ending gun violence, and help the communities that have suffered so badly to rebuild,” said Biden.
