Sandy Hook wasn’t the first school shooting, but it was supposed to be the last

Sandy Hook wasn’t the first school shooting to get America’s attention, but it was supposed to be the last.

The shooting deaths of 26 people, including 20 young children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, 2012, shook the nation. At the time, it was one of the worst mass murders in modern U.S. history, horrifying because of the number of people killed as well as the tender ages of the victims.

Since Sandy Hook, many more Americans — young people as well as adults — have been killed on the premises of elementary schools, high schools, and college campuses across the U.S.

Here, we honor their lives and remember their names. We invite you to click through the individual names, where possible, to learn more via the memories shared within and below each person's obituary.
