The permanent memorial to the lives lost April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Colorado was created with the participation of the Columbine school community and the efforts of an original group of 100 people, according to Doug Ireland, division chief for the Littleton (Colo.) Fire Rescue. It was Chief Ireland who cautioned the Newtown community in January 2013 that a permanent memorial to 12/14 would be “a slow process,” noting that it was eight years before the Columbine memorial was completed.

Rock of Angels was loaded onto a 63-foot flatbed truck last week and driven to Sullivan, Me. It will begin its trip south on Saturday, stopping in Hartford on Sunday for a special event, and will arrive in Newtown on Monday, August 12. The monument’s placement in a small field behind St John’s Episcopal Church in Sandy Hook will offer a quiet, permanent place for anyone who wants to pay their respects to those killed on 12/14.
