RED LAKE, Minn. (AP) - A group of young adults from Minnesota with a keen understanding of the pain felt in Newtown, Conn., are traveling to the East Coast to let those affected by the elementary school massacre know that they're not alone.
Most are 2008 graduates of Red Lake Senior High School, and know the heartbreak and loss felt in Newtown following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that took 20 young lives and six adults.
In 2005, a 16-year-old student went on a shooting spree on the Red Lake Reservation. Seven people were killed at the school. The gunman's grandfather and his grandfather's girlfriend were also killed.
The delegation of around 20 Red Lake members will pass on a plaque they received from survivors of the 1999 Columbine school shooting in Colorado.
