Video: Newtown First Selectwoman Patricia Llodra

(WTNH) -- Speaking at an interfaith vigil after the shootings at Sandy Hook School, Newtown First Selectwoman Patricia Llodra said:

"The horror that was visited upon our Sandy Hook School was not deserved. It is the angry and desperate act of a confused young man."

"I know that Newtown will prevail, that we will not fall to acts of violence. It is a defining moment for our town, but it does not define us. We are Newtown -- a special and caring place. We are defined by acts of courage, by acts of love, and by our continuing commitment and love four our children and families."
