A memorial to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, a gift from the people of Maine, arrives at Portland’s Central Fire Station Saturday afternoon, after stopping first in Freeport and other Maine communities on its way to Newtown, Conn.

The memorial, made of granite, concrete and seashells, includes the names of the children and adults killed last year at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Creator Richard Gray talks with visitors at the Freeport Public Safety building about the work that went into the Sandy Hook Memorial.
