It’s hard to believe the shooting at Sandy Hook was five years ago.
On Thursday, celebrities took to Twitter to remember the children and adults who tragically lost their lives at the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school on December 14, 2012.
While this country has yet to see stricter gun control laws, that hasn’t stopped stars from also using their voices to call for an end to all the senseless violence!
I├óΓé¼Γäóm in tears remembering these little innocent lives that were lost #SandyHook . 5 years ago today. Praying for their families. Please can we have #gunsafetylaws ? What does it have to take ? @MomsDemand @Everytown https://t.co/bv7Z5lGWPQ

We tend to lump victims into groups and forget individual stories. Their pain is unique and significant. Thank you, @Nelba_MG, for sharing your story. Sending you all my love and strength today. #GunControlNow https://t.co/i2uHS2riQe

Thinking about the 20 sets of parents who were dropping their first graders at Sandy Hook Elementary right about now, 5 years ago, the 6 families of staff members who gave their lives for someone else’s children, and what they all have lived with every day since. RIP. #SandyHook

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the horrific tragedy at #SandyHook, which left a community mourning the lives of twenty children and six staff members. I will never forget the precious lives lost, which is why I continue to fight for common-sense gun safety reforms. https://t.co/hlyyHBoStV

My cousin’s daughter was in 2nd grade, walking back to her classroom when the shots started. Sophia was lucky. 20 innocent children and 6 teachers lost their lives in Newtown, CT in that senseless massacre. Honor them today. #SandyHook5yrs

Five years after the devastating attack on teachers and children in Sandy Hook, we mourn them and remember them. America needs common-sense gun laws more than ever and we must not stop pushing until we get them.

5 years ago this morning, the unthinkable happened in Sandy Hook. Ask yourself today: what have I done since then, to make sure it never happens again?
