A candlelight vigil to honor the victims and families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was held at Amaral Park in Pleasanton.

The vigil, which was open to all, was sponsored by the Mohr Elementary School PTA and featured children reading bios of the victims, a performance of "Amazing Grace" by singer Marnee Kaufman, and speeches by Pleasanton mayor Jerry Thorne and Henry P. Mohr Elementary School Principal Ben Fobert.

An "Open Time for Reflection" where attendees could read a prepared statement was also held.
