UMF Students Create Memorial to Sandy Hook Victims

Sandy Hook MemorialMoved by the recent tragedy in Connecticut, UMF students and twin sisters Mercedes and Maileny Guillen have created a touching memorial on the UMF campus. What started out as a simple idea to buy flowers, grew into a holiday decoration honoring the 26 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. According to the Sun Journal, the name of each victim, their age and birth date are written on balloons, which are then hung on a tree in front of the University’s Mantor Library. Although so hard to understand, the students said the effort helped them feel better and plan to leave the memorial up as they finish their finals.
