Green and Son Funeral Home in Fairfield, Connecticut, December 17, 2012 during a service for Noah Pozner,6 one of the victims of the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Funerals began Monday after the school massacre that took the lives of 20 small children and six staff, triggering new momentum for a change to America's gun culture. The first burials, held under raw, wet skies, were for two six-year-old boys who were among those shot in Sandy Hook Elementary School. On Tuesday, the first of the girls, also aged six, was due to be laid to rest. There were no Monday classes at all across Newtown, and the blood-soaked elementary school was to remain a closed crime scene indefinitely, authorities said.
