Panel demystifies Sandy Hook

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 by CHRIS ZWEIFEL Special to The Press in Local News

Second of two parts.

To understand the events at Sandy Hook, it's important to remember Columbine.

Bradley R. Beckwith, MS, LPC., considers the massacre at Columbine High School "the best example in our national history: what happened and what we've learned from it."

Beckwith, of Whitehall, was part of a panel discussion on Sandy Hook Jan. 10 at St. John's United Church of Christ, Fullerton. He began his portion of the presentation by asking the audience what they knew about Columbine.
