  It is the sixth anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting.
  
  Twenty children and six staff members died at the elementary
  school in Newtown, Connecticut that day.
  
  The first graders who were killed would have been in seventh
  grade today.
  

  On December 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza walked into Sandy
  Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and shot 26
  people, including 20 children, after also killing his mother in
  their home.

  News of the massacre reverberated across the country, and
  elicited a tearful reaction from then-President Barack Obama, who
  described it as the 
  worst day of his presidency.

  Sen. Chris Murphy, who had previously been a representative for
  the district that included Newtown, was among those present when the
  families of the victims learned about the fates of their loved
  ones.

  "'I'm so, so sad today," he tweeted on the sixth
  anniversary. "Sad for the searing loss, that hurts like hell
  every Dec 14th for those parents, my friends. And sad that I sent
  my youngest off to 1st grade this morning, and that I work with
  people who care more about politics than making sure he comes
  home safe."

  In the six years that have passed since that day, many of the
  parents and families launched foundations in their kid's names to
  help other children, and become advocates for gun control.

  Here are all 27 people killed in the deadliest school shooting in
  US history.
